Reminds me of the book Hard Day's Knight by Katie MacAlister. Setting is at a Renfaire but focuses more on the jousting crowd. She also wrote Men in Kilts.
"Nature always wears the colors of the spirit." - K. Gibran
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.
In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.
"Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves."
