The Away Team performed at this year's Summer Solstice Festival in Santa Barbara, If you've never seen the Solstice Parade it is not to be missed. You can check it out here http://www.solsticeparade.com. About 100,000 spectators are entertained by the people powered floats, ensembles, dancers which can be likened to Brazil's Carnival Santa Barbara style. The Festival is three days with music, art, crafts and food, a drum circle, a DJ area, and a kid's festival. The parade began 38 years ago as a birthday party for a local mime artist Michael Gonzales, parading down the street in costume. It's taken me awhile to get back to blogging. After Solstice I had to seriously get in gear to get my followup to my 2006 film "9/11 Dust and Deceit" ready to go for a September premier in NYC. This short film "9/11 Dust: A Healing Journey" will look at how those affected by the toxic dust of 9/11 are faring, the Zadroga Bill, and looking at how we can all heal from 9/11. So, here's a photo taken by Steve Fields (from the band Bunnyhead) of Nik Green and myself, Penny Little, at Solstice 2012.
