We are made of stronger stuff than ice and snow

we are made of deep earth, sunshine, stardust (yes, I said it), rivers (of caffeine), sarcasm, and love. 

Spring is here, just below the surface. She’s going to be such a sweet reward when she rises. 

You know what I love? I love that our friend John is in the air and he’s spending his time with us knuckleheads.

When I met with Maj yesterday, I played him the song John made for me, and he got all weepy, too. He was familiar with my poem, and was blown away by the music John created to accompany it, and agreed with me, that it was the best possible gift. 

I love that it’s the kind of gift that just keeps giving and giving and giving. 

Good morning, John!

Nice to see you throwing hearts all over my dash. Hope it’s going well learning that music piece on the new instrument. :)

Still a lot of lands to see
But I wouldn’t want to stay here
It’s too old and cold and settled in its ways here
Oh but California

California I’m coming home
I’m going to see the folks I dig
I’ll even kiss a Sunset pig
California I’m coming home

A song for friends who, like me, are dreaming of warmer places.

Why, yes, I am posting another selfie! I just wanted to show you how happy I feel because of John’s incredible gift. It’s ridiculous.

I’ve listened to it like 20 times.

Fixed the link, for some reason the last two stanzas were cut off, but it’s correct now. 

The guitar is making me cry. 

Internet Christmas

Honestly, I swept this thing. 

A shrug knit by my friend Richard, that is quite literally, a beautiful blue hug I can put on whenever I need a hug. And a song written for me by my friend John. Two amazing men bestowing their considerable talents on me? 

I don’t even know what I did to deserve such love, but I’m grateful. 

This far outshines meat space Christmas. 

A thousand thank yous. 

So my Secretish Santa gift arrived last night, but I didn’t open it until this morning. 

I’m still sitting here crying. I can’t even imagine how John found the time to compose and record a song for me, using the audio of me reading my singing circle poem.

My Maude, it is so beautiful. 

I’m at a loss for words right now. Just give it a listen, guys. This is one of the best gifts I have ever received in my life. 

Thank you, John.

No, John, you’re so right

I just can’t talk about Lindsay’s playing or I’ll make a mess up in this place.
