As I’ve been working on two writing projects over the past few months the following references and links and names of artists provided inspiration. To name a few.
Simon Ortiz: “If it’s fiction, it better be true.”
I came across the name Jo Freeman and the phrase “the tyranny of structurelessness” having been victimized by it for so many years LOL So I did some research, and sure enough.
I wish I had known about this prior to entering the workforce.

Anyway, take your music to the next level:
I'm back in the saddle again
Out where a friend is a friend
Where the longhorn cattle feed
On the lowly gypsum weed
Back in the saddle again
(by Gene Autry and Ray Whitley)
“The Nightingale” is what I heard.

Florene Price Symphony number one in e minor
Symphony number 3 by Ellen Zwilich
And Ellen Zwilich's Septet for Piano Trio and String Quartet
(I hope these links to youtube videos still work and haven’t too many ads)
Wayne Shorter played in this iteration of the Jazz Messengers. I’ve listened to Wayne Shorter recordings from this period, three especially, and then from the Weather Report era. So much more to learn.
And have I mentioned before these?
Lorrie Moore, A Gate at the Stairs, 2009
“Walking home, I passed a squirrel that had been hit by a car. It’s soft, scarlet guts spilled out of its mouth, as if in a dialogue balloon, and the wind gently blew the fur of its tail, as if it were still alive.”
