(Editor’s note: The following is a spoken word podcast that takes a simple daily routine to the next level.)

For about a year, Oakland, California, resident Airial Clark has taken part in a morning ritual: A walk from Grand Lake, through

Downtown and Chinatown, to Jack London Square. She takes her two sons to school then makes her way to work.

The daily jaunts got her thinking – and the writer decided to engage friend and sound artist Makana Muanga to put her early morning thoughts to music for others to experience.
