The Hugs & The Bees

Yesterday’s Hard Lox festival in downtown Asheville proved to be the ultimate schmear campaign (I really wish I could take credit for such a witty phrase, but, ’twas not mine, ’twas the event’s organizer). It was lively, fragrant, tasty, pleasing to the ear, and well attended. The highlight, though, had to be the Free Hug man. Nicole and I both partook. 

Local cultural and heritage celebrations can be a great way to meet and connect with folks in your community. Take a gander at your local news source and see what’s happening in your town. You can also often find some incredible free classes and events in your community when you start looking. An upcoming workshop I’ll be taking and couldn’t be more excited about is on beginning bee-keeping. All you Ashevillians out there might want to consider this. Bee-keeping and stewardship couldn’t be more timely or more vital. Happy communing, ya’ll!
