So I’m having a great time at Marcon. I’ve gotten to spend time with Faith Hunter and Lucienne Diver, I’ve met some terrific people, and had a few fun and interesting panels. But I have to admit that I have one strong regret about being here instead of at home. My wife and daughters got to see Alison Krauss and Union Station tonight in Chattanooga, and had I been home I would have gone with them. I love AKUS and though I’ve seen them in concert a few times before I still would have enjoyed seeing them again.
Anyway, tonight I get back to my hotel room and check my messages and there on my Facebook page is a photo of my two daughters standing with their arms around AKUS lead mandolinist and singer, Dan Tyminski, the voice behind the version of “Man of Constant Sorrow” from the movie Oh, Brother, Where Art Thou. I kid you not. I KNOW there is a great story behind this photo. I can’t wait to hear it. And yes, I am totally jealous of my kids.
