"She always loved the sea, but that never explained
why I saw shipwrecks in her smile. She was the type
of girl that slipped out of your fingers like sand,
especially when you tried to hold on too tight, she
didn’t like being too close. She’d crash into men like
the waves crashed into rocks, she thought she would
find herself in them but she never did. I told her she
already had something. I told her that the emotions
she held inside her were gifts to be written and given,
but instead she swallowed pills that took them away.
She asked me if I believed in heaven and I said yes,
and followed it with a don’t go without me. She shook
away the smile on her face and said one day she’d meet
me between the sea and the sun, I didn’t understand
what the hell she meant so I just said okay. It wasn’t
until the next day I called her in the morning and got no
answer, no answer, no answer.
The last time I caught a glimpse of her was when I set
her ashes free, between the sun and the sea. Where
she wanted to be."

their best friend  (via delicatepoetry)

When it comes to Christmas presents I always struggle with what to get my dad. Though he appreciates my art he’s not quite so into the junky kitschy art projects I flood other people with. I was stumped this year and about a week before Christmas I decided I’d do a simple ukulele cover for him. I asked him if he and his dad had a song and he said, “of course, April Showers”. He started to hum it and got teary eyed so after that it was a no brainer haha. My below par ukulele skills kept me from being able to teach myself to play and sing it in under a week. I somehow lucked out and ended up with Blake as a best friend and he made this happen (someone told me ‘best friend’ sounds cold but I didn’t want to say boyfriend when I feel like best friend is a stronger title?). Singing in his vocal booth where he usually records actually talented singers had to be the most intimidating thing ever haha. I didn’t want to post this but my dad keeps asking me to. Strings are from the Al Jolson recording. This is the card I gave him with the song:

"All of this is typical girl-fear. Once you realize that The Exorcist is, essentially, the story of a 12-year-old who starts cussing, masturbating, and disobeying her mother—in other words, going through puberty—it becomes apparent to the feminist-minded viewer why two adult men are called in to slap her around for much of the third act. People are convinced that something spooky is going on with girls; that, once they reach a certain age, they lose their adorable innocence and start tapping into something powerful and forbidden. Little girls are sugar and spice, but women are just plain scary. And the moment a girl becomes a woman is the moment you fear her most. Which explains why the culture keeps telling this story."

Rookie, The Season of the Witch
