Just wanted to let regular readers know that I’ll be gone this coming week in Arkansas. I’ll be at the Heifer International Ranch as an adult sponsor for a church youth group at a friend’s church. It is doubtful that I’ll be checking email while gone, so if you need to get in touch with me (and it is urgent), please call my cell phone.
Here are some pictures I took at Saturday’s OKC Pride festival (the festival also runs today, along with the parade).
I was there both as a candidate, but also working as a pedicab driver. I really enjoyed being there, mostly because I (as a hopeless romantic… and I should add for anyone wondering, a heterosexual) am so inspired to see how hard the LGBT community has to fight for their right to love. I also just enjoy the vibe of the community (very freeing) and the friendly folks there.
Also the musicians in the 2nd picture are of Betsie and the Edge (Garth Brooks sister), who had kind of bluesy kind of sound. (I also really digged the band Simple Tree that played earlier in the day)
