I succumbed to a second impulse after seeing lots of school kids at the spot my first impulse led me to. I didn't really work out in terms of kid avoidance but I had a good time and saw some wild critters.

Prelude - April 9, 2013
Starting in Van Wert is not just a whim. By coincidence, there's also a concert there, just one day ahead of Cece's, that I'm looking forward to. Though I've heard a fair amount of Carey Murdock's music, this will be my first chance to see him perform more than a handful of songs at a jam session.
Here's another coincidence. I was a small contributor to Kickstarter campaigns for both performers I'm seeing on this trip as well as for that movie that drew me to Nashville a couple of trips back. Kickstarter didn't make me aware of these artists; It was the other way around. Dirk Hamilton made me aware of Sara Terry and FOLK, my knowledge of Carey Murdock came from Josh Hisle, and I first met Cecilia Otto at the 2011 Lincoln Highway Association Conference. I put a few bucks into each of these projects because I believed in the people involved and it's nice to see that confidence prove warranted.
