Episode 71 - Nature
This morning, with no real plan, I was reminded of the importance of our connection with Nature. To quote Butch Robins (speaking about Bill Monroe and his creative process) "If something happened in his conscious surroundings, such as a bird flying by or a dog barking, he would make sounds within the music flowing from him that reflected the action he had just ingested with one of his five senses."
After some rambling, pre-dawn social commentary, I turned the show over to Nature herself. Sometimes the best way to recharge your battery is to un-plug. Enjoy the show!

The outro music for this episode is the hearty crowing of our rooster named "Carl" a.k.a "Clay Bird". What a set of lungs!
