4 a.m.: In Other News: Peter Champoux Guest " Peter Champoux, his early exposure to stone that holds the memory of life, began while quarrying dinosaur footprints as a lad with his father in New England. A teenage revelation that his name translated to Rock of the Field led him to a fascination with other rocks in the field, like Stonehenge. As a classically trained stone mason, he studied the patterns and reactions of stone. Peter is a life long student of comparative religion and all things geographic. He was also a player in the conscious community movement in the 70 s and 80 s. His unique vision of the world has evolved into reading the patterns of local memory lines as they coalesce into large-scale patterns worldwide. From Pacifica Radio.
