like a garden needs a flower

O, my muse, the world wide interweb. Take a looksy at Paul McCartney’s ‘Waterfalls’.  His sweater vest is rad.

Are you often surprised by the tunes that just show up in your brain on a Tuesday morning? I’ve learned from wiki that the TLC tune’s name, and perhaps a few lyrics, may have come from a 1980 Paul McCartney song of the same title, Waterfalls. I love the internets.

happy earth day, Earth!

Tuning out for the day. I’m going to try and stay off this machine as much as work allows. See you all out on a walk later?

listen up!

Here is something that I learned this week: Sound is touch. I think we all know this, but don’t often pause to think on it or really absorb that notion. Sound is touch. Now I’m going to teach you something: When you find yourself being kind of rotten to the person you love I suggest you lay your phone down on the windowsill, open up the window wide, and zip your lip and ALLOW the hoot of a great horned owl and the chirps of the first spring frogs to come drifting into the mouthpiece and float across wires and space and land gently into the ear of the person you love. Maybe then they will forgive you for being a shit.  Because they will have felt your hand on their heart.

spring snow & 40 years

This snowy shot (very Robert Frost) was taken on the FIRST DAY OF SPRING from my back porch. Way to be lame, Spring!

And this photo was taken at my friend Tina’s surprise birthday party. I’m sad to say that we must have spent an hour in front of that mirror trying to take cool, experiment-y shots. Our hats (as well as all the hats at the party) were made out of white felt, on a whim, by our friend Kylie. Happy Birthday, Tina!
