The Shangri-La stage in all its glory. Photo by Lauren Kent for Radio Rubber Room. Sunday, Sept. 20: Sunday has arrived and caught me unprepared. I’m tired. I am physically, mentally, and emotionally drained, overwhelmed, and disoriented, and I would be lying if I said there wasn’t some part of me that was ready for the comforts of home. But I don’t want to go home right now. Right now, I want to live here on this mountain with these
