Close your eyes and imagine it :: your (maybe red polished) toes dancing around in the soft, green grass. the perfect breeze. the summer sun shining against your shades as it heads down in the distance to frame the stage. the stage that's lit with reds and blues and spotlights highlighting the band. it's one of your top bands, maybe singing their most fantastically obscure song that you thought you were the only one who knew the words to, but you aren't. there are people as far as you can see (which is actually not very far when you're the height of A, but still) who all know the words. because these are music fans, devoted to the art. you're all swaying (or jamming out...whatever your style is) to the beat with your hands waving. and you belong here. amongst the most hardcore festival goer of them. it's a love. and it's why you brave the heat and the crowds and the port-a-potties. and why the walls in your home hope to overfill with posters that tell too many stories* and hang as badges of honor from every festival you've been to together.
