I wrote earlier about some of the struggles I had there. Ultimately, the culture of chaos was too much for me. Limits within the festival, even when set, were not adhered to, which is fatal when working with kids. I reached my own limit and had to enforce it.
That I think it was a good decision doesn’t mean that I’m thrilled about it. I wish that I could be there for the kids. I wish that I could have found a way to a solution. I am sad.
But the peace is still there, underneath.
