Throughout this long strange trip that has been, and is, Devyn’s Charm, Inc. one thing has always been the “North Star” for Devyn and our family… and that is MUSIC! To be honest, that is all she had for almost a year, while laying on her back in an intensive care unit bed. By the way… Devyn does’t have the taste of your typical kid, she prefers the likes of Jimmy Buffett, Bob Marley, Billy Joel, Elton John, The Allman Brothers Band, Neil Young, AC/DC, and The Grateful Dead and all sorts of truly talented musicians.
So, we come full circle to Devyn’s Charm, Inc.’s first official event to RALLY support for military families of children with special needs… and what better than a Music Festival!
On September 19, 2015, Devyn’s Charm, Inc. and all of our family and friends will be Rallyin’ & Rockin’ the Connecticut Shore for the SECOND year in a row at Eastern Point Beach in Groton, Connecticut!
The Counterpane Music Festival was shaped largely by a poem penned by Robert Louis Stevenson entitled The Land of Counterpane. Sheets become plains and pillows hills in Stevenson’s poem about a child whose imagination knows no bounds while laying sick in bed.
The Land of Counterpane
When I was sick and lay a-bed,
I had two pillows at my head,
And all my toys beside me lay,
To keep me happy all the day.
And sometimes for an hour or so
I watched my leaden soldiers go,
With different uniforms and drills,
Among the bed-clothes, through the hills;
And sometimes sent my ships in fleets
All up and down among the sheets;
Or brought my trees and houses out,
And planted cities all about.
I was the giant great and still
That sits upon the pillow-hill,
And sees before him, dale and plain,
The pleasant land of counterpane.
– Robert Louis Stevenson”
