Cornerstone
July 2001

PEOPLE!  PEOPLE WERE EVERYWHERE AT CORNERSTONE.  PEOPLE MADE UP CORNERSTONE - THE CROWDS, THE BANDS, THE ARTISTS, THE FAMILIES, THE FRIENDS...
I ENJOYED SEEING MOMS AND TOTS THAT WERE THERE.  SOME CUTE KIDDOS.  THOUGH I'M NOT CERTAIN HOW THEY SURVIVED THE HEAT AND NOISE.  :-)
MY COHORTS AND I DID A LOT OF PEOPLE WATCHING AS WE SAT AND WAITED FOR DIFFERENT SHOWS, OR JUST HUNG OUT AND ESCAPED THE SUN.  THIS WAS IN THE IMPROMPTU TENT.  THIS GIRL WAS WAITING TO SEE IF HER NAME WOULD BE CHOSEN IN THE DAILY DRAWING.  I THOUGHT SHE LOOKED INTERESTING.

I THINK YOU SEE QUICKLY HOW CREATIVE GOD IS IN HIS DESIGN OF US.  I LOVED SEEING PEOPLE - EACH WITH THEIR OWN STYLE AND UNIQUE QUALITIES.  SOME WITH INTRICATE HAIRSTYLES, OTHERS WITH ELABORATE CLOTHES, OTHERS WITH ARTISTIC TATTOOS.  I PARTICULARLY LIKED THESE 2 TATTOOS (RIGHT AND LEFT)
ANOTHER AMAZEMENT, TO ME, WAS HAVING A CROWD THAT HUGE, AND YET RUNNING INTO THE SAME FOLKS SHOW AFTER SHOW.  THESE FOLKS TO THE RIGHT WE'D MET (SORT OF) AT A SMALL FESTIVAL IN LOUISVILLE, KY - AT BELLARMINE COLLEGE.  WE SAW THEM AGAIN AT THE PRE-CORNERSTONE SHOW. AND THEN AT LOTS OF SHOWS AFTER THAT.

THE COWBOYS RETREAT - 
I WANTED TO TAKE A CLOSER PIC OF THESE GUYS BUT FELT TOO EMBARRASSED TO SAY, "YOU LOOK INTERESTING, CAN I TAKE YOUR PICTURE?"  I GUESS IT WOULDN'T HAVE BEEN ANY WORSE THAN SOMEONE SAYING TO ME AFTER THEY TOOK MY PHOTO, "I'M JUST TAKING PICS OF ALL THE PEOPLE AROUND ME."
