Chris Wood of The Wood Brothers at the Ossipee Valley Music Festival in Hiram, Maine on July 28, 2018 dancing in the shadows while his band mates play a sweet, mellow groove. One of the highlights of the concert was the song "Postcards from Hell," dedicated to musicians, artists, bakers, mothers, anyone who keeps a creative spark burning inside when life gets too big - that's basically all of us in some way or another. The chorus goes, "I've got a soul that I won't sell, and I don't read Postcards from Hell." It was a beautiful moment.
At the festival in recent years, organizers have adorned the corners of the stage with buckets of sunflowers. Coincidentally, the song Postcards from Hell comes from an album titled "Loaded" which features on the cover a photograph of two figures whose faces are hidden by sunflowers. Chris Wood spontaneously grabbed a flower while dancing this night. It was an unplanned and serendipitous reminder of the creative spark within us all. He hung the sunflower on the moon.
