4.8.18 Going to Seed

Joel Salatin said, “Outrageous behavior, also known as the lunatic fringe, is the seed bed of innovation and creativity.” And that’s what we have this week on melodically challenged, an hour of poetic innovation and creativity because we’re goin’ to seed. We’re sowing the seeds of poetry, this week on melodically challenged, where yesterday’s poetry comes alive and today’s poetry rocks!
