Unfortunate Rocks

By sad_infamy_sings on March 10, 2024 10:47 pm

Climbed my mountain today after not visiting it for a year. I bought a book about it at the gift shop, as well as a cheap $3 bamboo flute. I found my Appalachian ocarina stuffed into my painting bag and recorded some stuff quickly using garageband on my phone, kind of fumbled over the interface and my headphones ran out. It’s good to be back on the mountain, what an odd book I bought though, it’s called “Kennesaw, Natural History of a Southern Mountain.” The author, Sean P. Graham sympathizes with the rocks, personifies them as he describes how they were formed. Where does the line fall between poet and naturalist? I look forward reading this book in the coming weeks and further solidifying my understanding of this mountain. The words spoken are taken from chapter 1, titled: Unfortunate Rocks.

Eerie but comforting vibes... reminds me of that video with Hermeto Pascoal playing his flutes in the lake.
