Sacred Life Sunday: Oktoberfest ’08

Oktoberfest ’08, originally uploaded by DawnsRays.


Saturday October 11, 2008 OKTOBERFEST in Germantown — Nashville, Tn.

Beer, Polish sausage, Oompah bands, beer, crafts, pretzels, beer, people watching, local bands, beer, what more could you ask for on a clear, warm October day?

It was so much fun. This section of town is historic and they block it off each year for the festival. It is a really quaint neighborhood and as you walk around you feel like you know everyone!

When we first walked in there was this woman tending her garden and she was gathering seeds from this awesome plant. I walked up to her fence and was commenting on how beautiful her flowers were and she said, ” do you want some seeds?” I was so surprised by that sudden act of generosity for a (soon to be buzzed) stranger. It was great. I said “yes”, of course and collected my seeds, thanked her and went on my way. Great start to a great day.

Hope you encountered some generous strangers or was one yourself. Happy OKTOBERFEST, everyone!
