My first night ended in excellence, bringing on the morning light with new friends. Determined to receive the full experience during my limited time, I went on a lone adventure after watching a set at the Dragon Stage and wound up chasing the sun into the clearing. There, we shared pizza slices sitting criss-cross apple sauce in the grass. “A Pizza Sunrise,” they called it. They were a handsomely gregarious bunch, the girls in braids, boys with long hair.
5:37 AM My intent was to head back to the car for some shut eye. Brenda had already beat me to it hours before. But, I’m persuaded to change course. By white awnings this time… little cabanas, surrounding 2 still rectangles of water. There’s a deck dividing it down the middle, it seems like you can hop from one pool to the next with just a step. No one’s around, except for ever present security patrolling the perimeter. So t h i s is the pool stage. I plop myself into a cabana. I have a VIP view to the skyline from here, and I’d like to know the inside scoop from the hawks themselves. Sorbet oranges and soft pinks collide with the clouds while I drift in and out of sleep as I’m told stories of Sasquatch versus WTF. Security declares: WTFest trumps all.
