S08 Ep09: Autumn Harvest

Creeper Trail Fall DRJ

“In the deep fall
don’t you imaging the leaves think how
comfortable it will be to touch
the earth instead of the
nothingness of air and the endless
freshets of wind?”                     – Mary Oliver, “Song for Autumn”


A harvest of music from around the globe inspired by Autumn in the air.
