Today was the final day of the 2006 season for the New York Renaissance Faire in Tuxedo.
I do readings at the Faire. As far as money was concerned, it was a “ho-hum” season for me. The weather ruined a few days, and overall fewer people attended than in previous years.
Every once in a while, I ask myself, “Why do I do it?” The effort involved is considerable, the social prospects for me grow dimmer every year, and there’s a certain physical challenge to running a booth by myself.
On the other hand, this year I learned sphereplay.
I’m not the only one who stays at a Ren Faire longer than is good for them. Drat these Faires! They get into your blood!
