There are two guiding sayings from my journalism education that stick with me the most...
The first, "If your mother says she loves you, check it out," is for another time and another blog post.
But the second rings true as we prepare to journey headlong into experience overload with the sixth edition of Treefort Music Fest: "Turn your back on the action...(to see the reaction to the action)."
The sensory overload from the numerous stages that spawn across Boise draw the eye and many a lens during this cultural explosion. But I find that the most fascinating - and lasting - images that bring the soul of Treefort to life are what I see when I turn my back on the action.
