|The Black Swamp Arts Festival fills the streets every September. This year, elizabeth was too sick to go. | The girls and I went down the first day; elizabeth stayed in bed… depressed, scared, sick. | The people gathered in the streets, listening to music, and eating, looking at art… and happy. | elizabeth rested at home in the dull gray cocoon of chronic illness.|

Day 20, “The Black Swamp Arts Festival Part 2” 09.07.14

|The next day at the festival, elizabeth (not fully recovered) made it out with the girls and our friend Paul while I worked. | She made hats with X and Zo and then walked around a little bit. | There are 20 years of Festival memories behind the sunglasses. The last 2 have been the hardest. | The day ended with the anticipation of Zo’s tonsillectomy the following morning. |

Day 21, “The Tonsillectomy” 09.08.14
