S08 Ep34: Elemental Music, Part 4

Elements FF Post

“I hope the OCEAN CALLING series will help renew our connection with this vital life source and its vast, mysterious realms, and that we will hear the calls from the sea that we are one.”  – Meira Warshauer


Earth, air, fire, and water.  Our understanding of the four elements has changed over the centuries.  And still, they touch the artists’ heart, inspiring awe and creativity.
