Recipe for Lark
1 redwood forest
3 camps, well-aged
800 musicians of assorted gender, age and ethnicity.
Stir musicians into forest, mixing evenly among three camps to avoid lumps.
Pour in music to total stupefaction.
Add equal parts sleep deprivation, mosquitoes, alcohol and dust.
Allow to steep for one week.
Remove blissed-out campers promptly to avoid terminal fatigue.
This holiday dish is traditionally enjoyed every summer toward the end of July.
