Summer-Sounds-2022-Bob Davis Podcast 1045

Summer Sounds 2022 Immersion Therapy

Firstly I think we all need a break from the craziness right now. I’ll give you that in Summer-Sounds-2022-Bob Davis Podcast 1045.

Headphones

Secondly put your headphones on to listen.

Spring Is Here

Certainly spring is here.

Not In The North

But in much of the northern tier winter can still come back with a vengeance.

Real Summer Experience

And the real summer experience is a few months away for most northerners.

Sounds You Might Be Missing

Even more if you live in the desert but were raised up north there’s a lot of sound in Summer-Sounds-2022-Bob Davis Podcast 1045 you might be missing.

Yearly Project

In addition this is a yearly project for me.

Therefore here’s a link to some of the other summer sounds podcasts I’ve done.

Usually I produce Summer Sounds podcasts in mid winter.

However I was a little delayed this year.

Mountains to Plains

For example unlike other years I’ve traveled all over the US this year collecting sounds from the mountains to the plains and back again.

Lakes

For example a drum circle in Arizona and fireworks on a Wisconsin lake.

Mountains

Or the wind more than a mile high in Colorado.

Campfires

And campfires from Montana to New Mexico.

Summer

Summer in all its glory.

No Talk

Finally I don’t talk much in Summer-Sounds-2022-Bob Davis Podcast 1045.

In short I talk at the beginning and briefly at the end.

So you won’t be jolted from your summer experience.

Constant Barrage Ends Here

And these days I think most of need to talk less!

That is to say we’re under constant barrage from media.

Telling us what happened and what’s gonna happen.

Stress Cure

Therefore our stress levels are through the roof.

Playing With Sound

To sum up I felt better just producing this podcast. Playing with sound. Discovering sounds I didn’t even know I recorded during travel this year.

Power Of Sound

In conclusion sound is powerful. It can take us down.

Or lift us up.

Further we all need a good lift right about now.

Summer Is Coming

Of course the good news is we won’t have to wait long for the real summer to come.

A Wish For Peace

Above all here’s wishing your summer to be peaceful.

Where ever you are.

Campfire-Is-The-Nomad-Hearth-Bob Davis Podcast 1041

Campfire Is The Nomad Hearth

The Campfire is the Nomad Hearth. Therefore we’ll talk about cooking and contemplating the campfire in Campfire-Is-The-Nomad-Hearth-Bob Davis Podcast 1041.

Free Camping Is Good

Firstly I have been camping around Quartzsite Arizona for several weeks now.

Firewood Source

And I’ve been buying my wood from a place called Woodstock Firewood here in town.

Drum Circle

Secondly every year about this time Woodstock Firewood has a drum circle as a celebration of the season.

This Is The Season

Most importantly this part of Arizona has a season.

Sunshine

Even more a lot of Nomads come down here for free camping and sunshine.

Short Season

But I am sorry to say everyone pretty much starts clearing out around the end of February.

However I will be staying as long as I can.

Summers Are Hot Here

Certainly the one hundred plus temperatures here in the summer aren’t inviting for most snow birds.

On the other hand I have become more and more of a desert dweller every day down here.

I don’t know whether it can get hot enough for me given my years spent in the Northern Tundra!

We’ll see.

Contemplating Nomad Hearth

Meanwhile it’s time to enjoy the drumming of the drum circle and contemplate the nomad hearth.

Something About A Campfire

Above all there’s something about the fire that eases the troubled mind of modern times.

The fire is a nomad kitchen and more.

In addition the nomad hearth is a place for stories, songs and celebrations.

As it has been for tens of thousands of years.

Likewise there’s something special and deep about the campfire.

In short the nomad hearth is just that. The center of nomad life in the campground.

Modern Life Needs A Campfire

Even more I would suggest the craziness of Modern Life could use a campfire every now and then.

Back Drop For This Podcast

As a result I think the drum circle is a perfect back drop for Campfire-Is-The-Nomad-Hearth-Bob Davis Podcast 1041.

Thanks to the Resonance Bus

Moving On

Eventually and finally I’ll move on from this magical place.

But I Don’t Want To

That is to say I’ll be traveling again this spring and summer.

But I am so glad to have been able to share in the community and get to know people here.

Both in town and out in the campgrounds.

In short I wouldn’t trade this experience over the last several weeks for anything.

Just What I Needed

Stopping down and spending time has turned out to be just what I needed.

Gratitude-Attitude-2022-Bob Davis Podcast 1035

Gratitude Attitude 2022

Above all we’re living through confusing times so having the Gratitude Attitude in 2022 is the right approach. I’ll tell you all about it in Gratitude-Attitude-2022-Bob Davis Podcast 1035.

Thanking Those Who Have Helped In 2021

Firstly I have a lot of people to thank for getting me and the podcast through a difficult year.

First Year As Nomad

Secondly if you want to hear more about my first year on the road permanently click here.

Second Year Of Nomad Experience Already Underway

But we’re now well into the second year of the nomad experience.

New Vibe

Already it’s a completely different vibe.

Constantly Moving In 2021

For example in my first year I traveled almost the entire year, stopping down only to deal with my mother’s death.

Slow Down

On the other hand I decided recently to slow down and get to know the places I’m interested in a little.

Discover Community

Consequently I have discovered the nomad community.

Quirky Quartzsite

In addition I’ve come to love the quirky place I have called home the last few weeks, Quartzsite Arizona.

And The People

Therefore as I look back over 2021 I see there are many people as well to be grateful for.

Clients and Contributors

Certainly clients and contributors to the podcasts.

Friends and Family

Likewise friends and family who have been very supportive throughout this process.

Some of 2021 Is A Blur

But some of 2021’s events are a blur to me.

Dreamy

To clarify there’s something dreamy about the nomad experience to begin with.

Process

Even more things like a death in the family take a little longer than a few days to process. Shockingly I don’t remember most of last winter due to dealing with my mom’s death.

Incredible Moments and Dreams

And yet there have been some incredible moments which also surprisingly feel like a dream.

Time Is Different For The Nomad

Finally my analysis is that the nomad does not experience time the same way as those back in the world.

Rome Bob, Rome

Certainly our concept of the New Year’s on January 1st goes back to Roman Times.

Lunar Calendars

Before that people operated on lunar calendars and told time with the stars.

Chinese New Year

As a result the so called Chinese New Year usually happens around February.

Farmers No More

Back in the day most of us were farmers.

Beginning Of Spring

Therefore the powers that be decided the New Year should also herald the beginning of the planting season.

Milestones

To sum up I am not one for marking these milestones.

Grateful

But I think it is good to recognize and be grateful for the good in life.

I am lucky to have so much of it mostly due to the people in my life.
