I've been a little stuck with coming up with a new episode lately, so I tuned into Radio Daydream. Where do those kind of daydreams come from? The answer has something to do with brooms, unused amused,? WD40, and a little bit of belief.? What if you embraced your magnificence just a little more?

Last October, in the middle of election insanity and pandemicness, I found an article about the water found in the Clavius Crater of the moon. I took a trip to the moon to get out of the craziness and found out how relaxing it can be to just float in a relaxing body of water.  I still need moments to revisit that experience and thought you might too.

It was time for me to get out of the house for a hike - a haze that smelled like garlic was following me around at home.  The hike was a little foggy, a lot like how the creative process is sometimes.  . This episode includes owls, squi...

I happened to grab 17 moonbeams on my way back from Episode 13... A Swim on the Moon . I wasn't sure what to do with them, just like sometimes we're not sure what to do with a creative idea. Despite a nightmare about dishes running away with spoons, I did end up writing by the light of one of them a few secrets about the creative process.  Sometimes ideas don't go anywhere... that's okay. It's a natural part of ...
