not a pretty picture. not a good. not a bad. picture. but an argument.

Music and News

I've finally posted the piece of music by my second born (they identify as they/them now). Sorry I never did post their original piece but you can find their cover here (with a piece of surprising news about Blue)! Gosh darn I love their version of the song, "If I Died On You" (originally by Karl Blau). The hair stands on my arms.

rowan berries burning, even in winter


With a red brush
The mountain-ash burned:
The leaves were falling
And I was born.

From a short three verse poem by Marina Tsvetaeva. (I would like to find a published English translation of this rowan berry poem. If anyone has a source, I'd be grateful to be made aware.)
