Baptisia in the Breeze

I got to record this wonderful sound last week at work.

Baptisia, also known as Wild Indigo or False Indigo, is a native Wisconsin plant and resident of our prairies. After seed pods empty and dry they croon a curious melody while dangling in the drafty afternoon sun.

Good News: Scholarship Awarded

Today I received word that I’ve been awarded the Journal Foundation Walter Jay and Clara Charlotte Damm Scholarship for students pursuing a career in radio, television or other news and entertainment communication media.

I’m glad because I really enjoyed the essay I wrote for the application. It being well received makes me feel like I’m on the right track with writing and I’m very excited to someday be in less debt!
