i love that i know so many music lovers and music-makers. because even when the shit goes down and i’m collecting rainwater in buckets and have forgotten what electricity and the internet are, i’ll still be singing “how i left the ministry” to myself.

in an attempt to be a good mother, i had my son fill out all of his valentines cards for his kindergarten class. i wrote the names of the kids that he had to give them to, and i had him sign his little name to each one. it took him 20 minutes to do. this is the email i received:
I think the Valentines that Christopher sent may have been mixed up with his sister’s class list ( I am not sure).
I can send home our class list again….if you don’t have one…
