pictured here: the saddest horse in west texas. a fine though purely symbolic pictoral representation of "hinterlands," the story that will be featured at the next (and first of 2006) LISSENUP which in fact has nothing to do with lonely horses, but everything to do with sadness. it's one of the most beautiful and memorable radio stories i've ever heard in fact, somehow blending fiction, radio theater and documentary more effectively than you might imagine possible.
this may seem an odd way to kick off the new year, but for some reason it just feels right. hope to see you then, for delicious snacks, fine company and benign melancholy. oh and...i should mention - it's a 45 minute program. so you might want to bring a cushion to sit on too, you'll want to get comfortable.
