The crowd gathers for the concert
My friend, Billie, managed to secure tickets for the Symphony in the Flint Hills, a unique event that is located in a different setting each year in the beautiful Flint Hills. This year the concert was in Chase County on a private ranch, miles off the nearest highway.
The concert began at 6:30 in the evening, finishing just before twilight. Sitting in this place, in a region I feel a deep connection to, listening to gorgeous music under the big Kansas sky, was pretty close to perfect.
