Owen Phyfe & LBDC

"May you live your lives with the ones that you love, so that when you grow old together... you'll find that it is the lives of happiness and laughter that have grown permanant."  - Bard Owen Phyfe.

These words were written for my friend Hamish, by Ren Faire Performer Owen Phyfe.  Owen lost his battle to cancer in recent weeks.   Owen was a talented artist, with a resoundingly, beautiful voice.  Thank You Owen for leaving us with great memories, words, and art. 

Thinking on Labyrinthe Belly Dance today - October 1999.  Clay's creative concept began that year, and I am excited to see how it continues and grows ;-).   I am grateful to him & many others for thinking of me, and giving me opportunities along the way.  I don't want to be popular - Lord knows I am not popular - but just grow as a person & artist.  My journey has reunited me with friends from those first years recently.  The people that are the right people, and kindred spirits, have stayed true.         

Oh yeah.  And more famous words from my high school friend Scott Crain, "Officer, What happens at Ren Faire stays at Ren Fair!"  ;-)
