And then she did a dance I never saw before…!
you better shape up…
keep making me laugh, let’s go get high, the road ...
the devil that’s calling as I come undone
you were stroking me like a pet, but you didn’t ow...
It took a long time to make it, but i never change...
this is what you want, this is what you get
they drop to the forest floor, frozen
fire in the water, is the body of our love

Hello Margaret!

come and take me to the real heartache

Lately I’ve been going out into the forest and trying to find signs of spring. I took these photos in the long grass, where in the spring and summer you can walk through on a little path that gets flooded over in the winter. It looks warm here, and it was; even though these are all the dead stalks from last year, that didn’t seem to matter much. No one goes there except the occasional dog-walker, so I don’t worry about looking insane. I was feeling very nostalgic, and sang this to the sun and my own shadow...
