Spring 21: Summer

5:50pm-6:00pm, Kettering, Ohio
very warm, humid, blustery wind

Ever notice how hermetically-sealed airports are? Once I'd gone through security this morning, there was no option of being in real, fresh air - I watched the sunrise through giant glass windows.

I suppose it is that much "safer", but there is something creepy about being in a completely sealed space. Maybe it's supposed to prepare us for the airplane experience?

I'm in Dayton, Ohio for a week-long residency with the University of Dayton's Music Department, leading improvisation workshops with groups ranging from the Gamelan (traditional Javanese music) to the Early Music Ensemble. Fun!

It was a summer day in Dayton, hitting 80 or more, totally confusing my travel-weary, early-spring-oriented body.

Today's bird is a chirper in the backyard bush of one of my hosts - hopefully you can hear him over the wild thick summer winds:
