Adrienne Young & Be Wild Virginia

Adrienne Young is a singer and songwriter in the bluegrass old time country tradition, and a woman who believes deeply in the family farm, the sustaining nature of wild places, and the importance of personal responisbility. She'd rather open doors than preach about all this, which is what she often does through her music (her latest album is called Room to Grow), and it is also what she does in this video, which she did for bewildvirginia.org. There's a generous helping of music, some fine scenes of natural Virginia, and a bit about the organization in the seven minute plus piece.

That was neat!! Beautful photography and great music for a good cause.

I just finished reading Stanley Kunitz's book The Wild Braid. It's not environmental per se, but there's a strong element of the connectedness of nature in it, through time as well as across species.

I left other comments yesterday, Kerry, but they seem to have gotten lost. Hmmm! :-\

Pam.
thanks for the comments. these are the only two I saw from you. no idea what happened to the others. I have comment moderation turned on so you won't see comments appear right away. but I do check in fairly often...

btw, you might want to search for a post called wilderness plots, think you'd like to know about that recording.
