Spring in Joshua Tree

I’m in the southern California desert on a break from my quotidian work to enjoy the bounty of the earth as provided. Long and lovely rains have fallen on this great state for the past few months. We are thankful.

Water brings and carries life. Huzzah!

Sunset sounds brim with myriad beautiful bleeping, buzzing, and blooing of birds and bugs of the desert. My Zoom H4 is in 120-degree, X-Y record mode. ~Me

A wizard exists in all of us. This wizard sees and knows everything. ~Deepak Chopra “The Way of the Wizard”

I have been listening to the vicissitudes of life since I was a wee one spending careful attention to things that fly. They make the most pleasing and curious sounds. They are plentiful here in the sonorous Spring of the southern California desert.
