June 1970- My first protest inevitably leads to my road to the White House
Recently I have had more time on my hands than I am used to having. So I have been looking at notebooks with notes about stories not yet written, flyers from shows barely remembered, dozens of shows, protests and events that I planned to write about. Suddenly I realized that I owe Rob Robinson an apology. I have attended the New York State Harvest Festival for ten of the last twelve years and never once posted a story about it. N Y Harvest festival moves around a lot and always always is a good time, unless it never stop raining, then there still is friends and fun to be had. I wondered why I overlooked this excellent festival so many times?
I realized that Harvest Festival is the last gathering of the season in the north east, last chance to party like well it was legal, I did many times. Those who have read my accounts of shows know that I seldom say much about Sunday, or Monday parts of the shows, because that's when things get real personal and the whole world don't need to hear about it, if you know what I mean.
Well the truth is that is how I feel about Harvest festival as a whole, Last chance, last dance, goodbye until the spring.
