    dancing  [html]
    I've been back in Medford for almost a week now, and things have started to be very relaxed. Perhaps a bit too much so. Lots of time reading, playing guitar, and messing with computer stuff. The experienced contra on Friday was much fun, and because I'm back for the weekend of the 9th, I'm going to be at the next one. And then NEFFA is two weeks later, with the Swarthmore contra in between. And ideally people will want to go to the April 1st Elverson dance as well. Lots of dancing.
