Just got back this morning, and what a weekend it was! The first ever Northern Lights Harp Fest in Ottawa was a resounding success (despite the glitches with the sound system on the last day). I had hoped to blog “live” (as it were) from the hotel, but my computer decided it didn’t like the hotel’s “plug ‘n’ play” internet hookup and refused to play along. Turned out I didn’t really have any free time to spare, anyhow. I only left the hotel once, and that was to walk one door over to the restaurant (which, it turns out, is accessible by a nearby escalator, so technically I could have spent the whole weekend indoors, only seeing the sky through the rain-streaked windows.)
Much too tired to write more today, but there will be full-fledged review of the event coming up, as soon as we’ve unpacked and I’ve had a chance at a real night’s sleep. Update Dec. ’09: Real life intervened and I never did get around to a proper review, sorry about that. Hoping to get the Blog going regularly again in January, after things calm down. – T.H.
One final note for all who are interested, the NLHF is going to be held bi-annually, so start saving now for 2011!
