While the Women are Sleeping

I’m sitting here desperately trying not to listen to the U.S. Presidential Debate that’s streaming into my earbuds, because the entire thing seems like such hot-twisted-metal train wreckage that the hairs on my neck get singed just listening to it. And I like my neck-hairs.

And I know that the next month is going to be full of the same, so to spare your hairs, neck-and-other-wise, I’ve recorded a nice long one for you, replete with what I see (through admittedly hazy eyes) as thematic portents to what I’m listening to. Consider this my own personal bailout to you.

You’re welcome.

I couldn’t be more grateful.
On a whim, decided to stop by the website before I turned in for the night (admittedly mentally pleading for another story as I did so) – and what a delight to find a fresh podcast!
(I’d say that I, too, have missed your voice in my ear as I fall off to sleep, but that wouldn’t be fair because I’ve been enjoying the archives.)

Thanks Miette!
