If you haven’t watched this yet, take 20 minutes out of your day and enjoy this conversation between two icons. They discuss the effect the Psalms have had on them, including great thoughts about the importance of art and the need for approaching art with honesty. If nothing else, it’s worth it just for Eugene Peterson’s infectious smile and his introduction to the mash pit.
Pete Peterson is the author of the Revolutionary War adventure The Fiddler’s Gun and its sequel Fiddler’s Green. Among the many strange things he’s been in life are the following: U.S Marine air traffic controller, television editor, art teacher and boatwright at the Florida Sheriffs Boys Ranch, and progenitor of the mysterious Budge-Nuzzard. He lives in Nashville with his wife, Jennifer, where he’s the Executive Director of the Rabbit Room and Managing Editor of Rabbit Room Press.
