  1. David – I loved this week’s podcast. I liked hearing you sound a little less “rehearsed” – more informal. It must have been because you were out in the natural world. I especially liked your description of the the little ripple place, and the sound of the wind. The whole thing was really charming. Do more outside recording – speaking just for me, it’s snowing and stupidly cold here in Wisconsin tonight, and the sound of the wind and water, some birdsong – it gave me hope for an early spring. Thank you for this Christmas Gift.
    Happy Christmas–

  2. I truly luv your podcast, especially your essays. Thank you for a fun informative podcast.

    If you have any extra free sock apps I would not mind trying it. If there gone that’s ok.
    Happy knitting,

  4. David, just listened to this show, I’ve fallen behind. Thought I’d tell you about a podcast from Scenery Station, they do short videos in HD, and one that they have done is of Wentworth Falls. Very beautiful.

  5. LOVED the show. I loved hearing about the world from down under! I loved the birds at the end too. I’ve been listening since the beginning. Keep it up. =)
