I was relaxing on the grass with some friends after my set at White Mountain Folk Festival last year when a young couple sitting beside me said hello and then,
“We’ve decided you are like Yoda, you’re wise and have much to teach us,” said the man, his girlfriend nodding and smiling beside him.
“Ha, to be honest, most of the time I feel as though I’m trying to learn everything I talk about in my songs,” I replied, meaning every word.
He paused, then smiled and said, “That’s just what Yoda would say.”
Thanks to those two for making me smile every time I think of that moment, even seven months later.
