While I was growing up, I remember watching my Mom’s face grow serene and peaceful when she’d listen to John Denver’s albums. She passed on her affection for nature, running and beautiful music to me.
Here is a photo of my Mom, me on her lap and my baby sister that was taken in a photo booth sometime in 1974.
Here are some of the songs that best capture my own captivation and love of the outdoors. I thought some of you might enjoy them as well.
