Trevor Borden (song of the week)

A friend sent me this song a while back and I haven’t been able to get over it since. The lyrics are perfect, the arrangement is enthralling, and his voice is pure soul. (Not to mention he’s a fellow TCK) In short, I am totally in love with Purple. Plus, free download!


This National Poetry Month has been rough. Thanks to you all for sticking with me as I post these sketchy daily poems, which have definitely taught me a lesson in humility. Hopefully this song can make up for all the other stuff.

The Swell Season (song of the week)


I just found out that this is Marketa Irglova and Glen Hansard’s band. I had no idea.


Sorry for not posting anything this past week. A lot of things have been on my mind: gender equality, the purpose of art, breakups, child abuse, and where God is in all this. Maybe I’ll be able to put it into words another time, but for now I’m going to just paint and watch the snow.
