Calling it a day …


Jeff Genung

The sun is just about ready to set on Day 1 of Colorscape 2006, and West Side Park is rockin’ with the sounds of … yodeling. If you’ve seen Gandalf Murphy and the Slambovian Circus of Dreams before, you’ll know that’s not nearly as torturous as it sounds. These guys are simply amazing, and a refreshing change of pace from the rest of the afternoon’s offerings.

It’s just about time to call it a day, and I’ve got to admit that my constant facade of pep is beginning to fade. It’s exhausting work being friendly all day … after eight hours of manning the Colorscape booth, I have a pretty good idea of what it must feel like to run for office. Speaking of which, the Democrats were out in full force today … I had a nice chat with Beth Garry, Mark Trabucco and Kelly Keck, candidates for Justice, Senate and Assembly. Nary a Republican candidate to be seen (at least at The Evening Sun booth). Hmmmm …

Kudos to all involved in pulling of what I’d say was a very successful 50% of Colorscape so far. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for tomorrow.
