You Hang Up

This weekend was the 30th anniversary of the Hillside Festival. It was also the 2nd time I attended. My first venture to Hillside was 2 years ago. At that time, I attended because I had promised Dr. Steph that I would. And I’m a man who keeps his promises. Apparently. What is Hillside? For those not…

Happy Pi Approximation Day
