I've always loved nature, but after my mother died I developed an insatiable need for the beauty in nature as if my life depended on it. When the doors flung open for me to move to the mountains I jumped at the chance and have been in love ever since. I live in a place where I am literally surrounded by mountains of beauty. I drink and breathe the sights and sounds of my country neighborhood. I have therapeutic views from every window of my funky little house... the healing power of beauty I call it.
All my life I've been a Fall person. Now the mountains are fast turning me into a Spring person as well. Spring in the mountains is indescribable, although I'm sure I, along with every other creative soul, will continue trying to describe it through prose, poems, songs, photos, and art.
Springtime brings a phenomenon which inspired this song. The 'Beautiful Sound' may surprise you.
