Tonight I did my practice during the first hour of Into The Deep, the longest-running ambient music program in the Southeast.
I discovered this amazing Monday night phenomenon on WEVL about a year ago. The host, Allan Bogle, has a voice like plush velvet that somehow maintains a seamless flow from one track to the next. He’s Midnight Mark on The Boat That Rocked, except with deft ambient concoctions.
Anyway, I don’t typically practice with music on. This was just an experiment. I won’t lie, it was nice. Training wheels for my practice while I learn to get centered in a new place. I feel at peace and recharged for my day tomorrow. The mellow vibe has me ready for bed at an inordinately early hour, but that’s part of the magic I guess.
Namaste, Mr. Bogle.
