Click on the blue music icon above to hear some of “Unabashedly,” my newest quartet.
The path I walk to the sand from the front door has spent all of May lined with thrilling outbursts of yellow blooms: canyon daisies and ice plant here; a few yards forward, mustard and dandelions. As dizzying as the sight is, the smell is twice so. Pungent sages are everywhere in between, and I cannot pass by without wrapping my palm around a stem and gliding my hand upward to attach the scent. Like the euphoria of the stroll, it stays with me long after I return to the studio.
