I wake up on Friday morning smelling of yesterday’s hamburger and wonder if this weekend I should take up coffee.
I spend a lot of time waiting. Waiting for people to arrive or an event to start or a venue to open. Usually my approach to the festival has been just to rock up and hope someone else knows what they’re doing but because I’m the Directors’ Assistant this year, I’ve found myself suddenly being one of the people who’s meant to know what they’re doing. There is a power to having a lanyard. People keep asking me questions that I can’t answer.
