Where do we record this? Ray asked.
We tried various places -- his studio and another backroom studio of a friend of my brother's. The recordings did not come out well. Finally, Ray was visiting our house in Tesuque, and he went into the downstairs bathroom. This was in the deepest part of the passive solar house, buried 22 feet under the earth. Jay DeGroat, my Navajo artist friend, painted a howling coyote on the south wall of the bathroom.
Here, Ray Griffin said, is where we'll record the stories.
Every one was recorded in that holy place, the bathroom, under the ground, in the First World.
