Feminine Fusion

S08 Ep40: Sun and Sand


“This is the sense of the desert hills, that there is room enough and time enough.”  – Mary Hunter Austin


The desert and the sun – they go hand in hand.  Barren, uninhabitable – yet each holds beauty and inspiration.  Today we revel in that beauty as we listen to music of sun and sand.
