For those of you who couldn't be there, let me set the scene.
It's a bright and cool Saturday Morning. Butterflys are dancing on the breeze. The breeze of course is a cloud of grease smoke coming from the Blooming Onion stand. We're at the Minnesota State Fair for the latest Story Slam. Tale tellers are lining up to entertain the crowd with their take on the days theme: Taking Sides.
If your head could swivel around all 360 degrees, the scene might look something like this (click in the screen and drag your cursor to the right or left):
Thanks to PIJ web-producer Preston Wright for this extreme panoramic photo. Looking at this photo while listening to the Story Slam is almost like being there . . . without the Blooming Onion smells of course.
Thank you Sanden for all your work this week and always! Loved the Detroit "story" - it gives you all kinds of ideas! We hope to see you next year at the Fair and you can have another chocolate waffle thing with whipped cream! - Pam and John
