Reflections From The Desert

Firstly the desert is a perfect place for reflection. Learn more in Reflections-From-The-Desert-Bob Davis Podcast 1075.

Creative Process

Secondly what’s your creative process?

Certainly there’s a lot to discuss about creative process in this podcast.

Free Wheeling Discussion

And a lonely desert with a campfire is the perfect spot for a free wheeling discussion.

Slow Is Fast

Above all I have learned working slowly is actually working fast.

And thorough.

Hyper Person

Of course people have thought of me as a hyper person.

One Thing At A Time

But in fact I like to work on one thing at a time and follow it through.

Stacking Creative Projects

Therefore stopped down in the desert means working on a writing project I’ve given myself.

As well as these podcasts.

Podcast Ideas

In fact developing unique ideas for the podcasts can be difficult these days.

Social Scrim

That is to say my listeners and subscribers know I refuse to get in the political social scrim.

Deeper Issues

However I do feel that advancing the story means talking about deeper issues.

Recent Podcasts Have Been Heavy

As a result some of the podcasts recently have been pretty heavy.

Time for an easy talker.

Campfire

So a campfire is just the ticket.

Structure

I also sum up the structure of my days out here.

Fuel Prices

Due to high fuel prices most nomads I know are hunkered down for the winter.

Southwestern Arizona

In fact Southwestern Arizona is perfect.

Perfect Fall Day

For example now that the monsoon is over everyday out here is like a perfect fall day in the Upper Midwest.

For the rest of the winter.

Channels Of Thought

Most importantly writing in addition to podcasting changes the channels of thought in a good way.

And I think will result in a sense of accomplishment after the winter months pass.

Second Year Anniversary

In short as I come up on the anniversary of a second year of nomad travel there’s a lot to talk about.

First Year

Finally the first year seemed to be in almost constant movement.

Second Year

On the other hand the second year has been a completely different vibe.

Experiences

In conclusion the great thing about nomad life is the experiences the nomad gives himself.

Almost-Perfect-Road-Trip-Bob Davis Podcast 882

Travel Is A Romance

I love to travel. I cover a lot of ground in a short period of time. All on back roads. This time it all came together. Learn why in Almost-Perfect-Road-Trip-Bob Davis Podcast 882.

Podcasting All The Way

Even more I’ve been podcasting the whole way. If you’re interested in where I’ve been and what it’s been all about, check out some of the travel podcasts here.

Back Home By The Fire

I’m home now here in Minneapolis and Saint Paul, so it’s time for a podcast from my home studio. Most noteworthy are the first impressions and takeaways from a trip that took ten days and covered thousands of miles.

11 States…Ten Days

Moreover all in the central United States. Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia and Virginia going out. North Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky and up through Indiana and Illinois again, sliding through Wisconsin and Minnesota on the way home.

Like A Dream

First of all a complete ‘takeaway’ is improbable. It takes time for a trip to gel. There are so many experiences. What’s especially relevant today, might not be a few days from now.

Takeaways

Certainly I have some takeaways though and I share them in Almost-Perfect-Road-Trip-Bob Davis Podcast 882.

Back Roads Baby!

My back roads navigating effort came together almost perfectly this time. A few glitches here and there to be sure, but all in all, in conclusion I have to say it was one of the best trips I have taken so far.

The Heartland Is Not A Petri Dish

These days everyone wants to know what’s going on in America’s heartland. The media prefers to use statistics and tie ins to existing top line stories to make their points.

Learn By Going There

I prefer to go to places, actual towns and cities to get the feel of things myself.

Sick and Tired Of Washington DC News

Perhaps due to all of this gas bagging about the state of our nation and so on, more than one person remarked to me how sick and tired they are of political news.

When It Comes To Economy Some States Are Better Than Others

Maybe I pay more attention to the media than I should. One of the biggest surprises is the general prosperity of the central United States. In contrast to the states that have not adjusted their taxation rates and incentives to businesses, those that have seem to be booming.

Amazed and Humbled

I continue to be amazed at the beauty and scope of this country. Indiana on a cold misty morning. Winding mountain roads in West Virginia. A sunset drive up Minnesota’s Highway 61.

Through it all, Mobile Podcast Command just kept right on rolling!

Peak-Summer-Triggers-Transformation-Bob Davis Podcast 847

Peak Summer

We’re living through a pretty intense time these days. Moreover I noticed something I call ‘peak summer‘ recently. It’s a pristine moment when time seems to stop and you can’t get enough. Learn more in Peak-Summer-Triggers-Transformation-Bob Davis Podcast 847.

A Time To Transcend The BS

In addition I think summer has a transformational quality. You can transcend all the BS. Especially in that moment when evening turns to dusk, the moon rises, and night starts to come on.

Power of Sound Gets It Across

I am fascinated with the power of sound. You can’t really film peak summer. Oh sure, some movies capture it. Pictures sometimes get it. On the other hand recording peak summer bottles the experience.

Evening Becomes Night and You Are There

As a result I have been out recording blocks of sound. In Peak-Summer-Triggers-Transformation-Bob Davis Podcast 847 listen to evening become night. You’ll have to put up with my explanation of why summer is transformative and some summer memories.

Summer Memories

I first experienced peak summer when I was a kid. Seems like around twelve, thirteen or fourteen. When you hit that age there is a natural separation from the family and a yearning for freedom.

Freedom and Independence

Maybe due to age, maybe by my insistence, my parents relaxed the rules a little during those times. I got to stay out later. Spent the night on the front porch, or in my fort in the backyard.

A Night Owl Returns To His Roots

I’ve always been a night owl. Consequently I spent a lot of time on the front stoop on those summer nights, listening to the radio and dreaming the way a kid dreams about the future.

It’s most noteworthy that these days I seem to have returned to those halcyon days. The glow of the street lights. Wind in the trees. The sound of trains in the big switching yard in my home down.

Don’t Forget To Enjoy It

We’re at the moment of peak summer right  now. Enjoy It.

Magic

I don’t have to tell people who live in the Upper Midwest, it’s a fleeting and magical moment. But I can share it with you…
