Me at the old studio in Indianapolis, 2008. After five long years of journeying I’m setting up space again at the new homestead in southern Indiana, where I’ve been reading a lot of Wendell Berry’s writing. This rang out like a bell:

“I am a pilgrim, but my pilgrimage has been wandering and unmarked. Often what has looked like a straight line to me has been a circling or a doubling back. I have been in the Dark Wood of Error any number of times. I have known something of Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven, but not always in that order. The names of many snares and dangers have been made known to me, but I have seen them only in looking back. Often I have not known where I was going until I was already there. I have had my share of desires and goals, but my life has come to me or I have gone to it mainly by way of mistakes and surprises. Often I have received better than I deserved. Often my fairest hopes have rested on bad mistakes. I am an ignorant pilgrim, crossing a dark valley. And yet for a long time, looking back, I have been unable to shake off the feeling that I have been led – make of that what you will.” ~ Wendell Berry

Editor, Gabrielle Price:  First, I’d like to thank Lee Camp for coming to Indianapolis and kudos to the Melody Inn for having such a cutting-edge, [dare I say] refreshing talent like Lee grace the stage at the ol’ Mel.  I wanted to share a link to some pictures from the evening which also featured local stand-up comedians from my hometown, Zan Aufderheide and Jeff Oskay.  It was a great night of side splitting laughter and Lee delivered the gonzo-goods tenfold.  We’re very proud to call him a TRC contributor.

Thanks to Zan for snapping two shots – both of which were blurry but hey, she’s damn good at comedy!
