We’ve been putting On Pasture up every Tuesday morning for about 3 and a half years now and, with Rachel in New York and Kathy in Arizona we’ve settled into a routine of lots and lots of phone calls, emails, drafts and redrafts. But it’s not just the two of us, it’s you too, because On Pasture wouldn’t happen without you.
So the minute we saw this video we realized, “That’s On Pasture!” Putting out a new issue of On Pasture every week looks a lot like three guitar players playing on a single guitar. Rachel and Kathy each strum part of the song, and there you are as the third set of hands, helping keep tempo, and adding in important comments and questions.
It’s the best demonstration for the intricate, behind-the-scenes music we all play out each week. We read your emails, try to answer your questions, and prepare to dazzle you with fascinating, useful information based on science and experience. Tuesdays, new articles go up, and you all chime in with even more music. Switch out the guitar for a website, two of our computers and tens of thousands of your computers, smart phones, and tablets, and you’ve got the picture.
It turns out working together can be about as complicated and up tempo as it looks and sounds, so we’re always happy for Tuesday to roll around when we can share the new articles with you. We hope you like the music!
