GaFilk - Crystal (Fall)

GaFilk
Yesterday - after finally coming home at 11:00 a.m. German time, with having landed in Frankfurt at 6:30, picking my suitcase and guitar (which survived, yeah!!!), having another small breakfast at the train station with Eva and Rafael and separating from them at Mannheim Main Station - because of Jet lag and long telephone conversations with my mother and one aunt, I didn't do anything about GaFilk except reading lots of posts from people whom I didn't know until this weekend, but who seem so familiar to me now...
I was shocked by the news of Dave Alway's death and had a bad conscience for not being able to mourn him properly, because, alas, I scarcely knew him at all! But I am sure I will at least remember his truly great lyrics, especially the ones ladyat posted - I also had that deep feeling within my heart that she describes...!
I promise solemnly there soon will be a detailed con report by Eva, Rafael and me, but as far as I know, they, too, spent the last 24 hours mostly sleeping.
In any case, once more I want to thank every single one of you for this great, stunning experience of GaFilk - the mood, the warmth and friendship, the impressions of life in Atlanta (Waffle House, the Aquarium, the Sutton house with dogs and cat and tea and football and and and...)! I hope all of you got home safely, and hope to see you again some time, some place...

I was really hoping to get to GaFilk to see you and Eva.

Bis FilkContinental.

So was I! What was it that held you back from coming? We both missed you and asked where you were, but no one seemed to know exactly what had happened.

Glad to hear you enjoyed the con and got back safely! It was wonderful meeting you and hearing your music; like you I look forward to the next time, whenever it may be.

Tried emailing this to your username at LJ, but it didn't work, so...

D'oh! Had I known about this:
