It's our voices that add to the beauty of Nature.
I love natural sound and I myself always carry a sound recorder in my hand wherever I go. It is the source where most of my inspiration came from, especially the whisper of wave and wind by the sea.
Also I enjoy listening to people's stories, the real stories in their lives.
As a foreigner, NPR opened a door for me and introduced me to a larger acoustic world, where I can hear real storyteller's stories instead of broadcasters' voice from mainstream media.The honesty and freedom of expressing always lit me up.
Living abroad, I cannot directly listen to NPR via radio, but I always carry my iPhone and turn on the NPR News and NPR Music apps (They are awesome! ), surfing through the topic of Arts & Life. My favourite stations include Thistle Radio who provides world music and WKSU's Folk Alley.
