As many of you may know, Starwolf and I are currently working at the Connecticut Renaissance Faire on the weekends ( 4 more weekends for any of you who may want to come out and join us…)

When you work at a renaissance faire, you meet a lot of interesting people and see a lot of interesting things, This year, we’ve had the rare treat of seeing the Lords of Adventure show on a stage at the end of our lane. The Lords of Adventure are Jack Bold and Roger Awesome, who do a show combining combat, comedy and philosophy. Their premise starts with the idea  that you can chose to be a hero or be a victim by accident.

Cool thought. That’s pretty deep for a knockabout comedy act.

I’d encourage you to come to the faire and catch their show. I’ve enjoyed watching them work, and I think that you’d like them too.

But, even more than the show, I was fascinated by what went on between shows.

The new site is wonderful, but the footing is largely gravel. We noticed a ma in a wheelchair down the lane having a hard time getting anywhere. Starwolf got up to go out and ask him if he wanted some help- but before he got out of the tent, along came Jack Bold.

In the most flamboyant way possible, Jack swooped down on the man in the wheel chair, instantly made friends, asked if he wanted help and then declared that they were off on another adventure, and dashed away with him in the direction the man wanted to go.

Jack not only helped him but also turned it into a theatrical adventure that the man in the wheelchair became part of.

When I spoke to him later, he told me modestly that he’d seen that visitor having problems, and, having asked permission, made it his business to help each time he saw him bogged down.  Jack respected the man’ s  autonomy by asking permission, and then did everything he could to make his day  special.

Jack Bold is my hero. He practiced compassion- and he brought the adventure, too.

And that make me think

In my life, every day, how can I practice compassion?

and how can I bring the adventure?

Earlier this week, I posted a link to a video for the after dark joust for Halloween Knights, going on at the Connecticut Renaissance Faire every Saturday night and on Sunday Oct 7th as well, just so you could get a taste of what the spooky part of the faire would be like.

But that’s not all that’s happening.

The faire is full of fabulous events that happen every weekend. Catch such acts as the Tribal de Luna bellydance troop, Circus Stella with their fabulous combination of strength and flexibility, aerial acts and talented canines performers, the music of the Trouvieres or the Lost Boys, the laughter of Commedia Mania or the Pope and the Cardinal, and the sheer fun of Vixens En Guarde. And that’s not even taking into account all of the going on in King Arthur’s Court!

But there are also themes and events that are special to each weekend

This weekend is Time Traveller Weekend, when visitors from other genres than the medieval are especially welcome. Steampunk or Star Wars, fantasy or Dr Who- this weekend is especially for you. This weekend you can

     -Enter the Cosplay costume contest (10/6)

     -Enter the Steampunk costume contest (10/7)

     -See fantasy artist, Jane Star Weils (6-8)    

     – Attend a book signing with R.A. and Geno Salvatore(10/6)             

     – Join our fingerdancers on Deaf Awareness Day (Oct 6)

     -Join us for safe trick or treat (10/6,7,13,20,27)

     – Enter the kids costume contest during Halloween Knights (10/6,7)

     -See the Owl-o- Ween show, during Halloween Knights (10/6,7)

     -Attend the Babes in Bodices contest (10/7)

     -Attend or enter the Men in Kilts contest (10/8)

And that’s all in addition to all of the regular wonderful the faire is made up of.

(That includes us, the psychics of Foresight. We’ll be there doing readings and Reiki and selling my books and having a wonderful time out of time.)

In short, this is gonna be a busy weekend at the Connecticut Renaissance Faire, and just crammed full of awesome. It’s so nice, you may have to do it twice.

And there’s three more weekends beyond this one…
