Felt Drawings by Darby Milbrath

Stream: Naran Ratan’s Trees Etc.

There is so much to be said for small things, for things whose claim to nature is struck in quieter gestures. This is the essence of ‘the moment,’ when for an instant we find ourselves captivated, in awe, or simply amused. And when the instant passes as discretely as it arrived, we’re reminded of the…
