-The freckled skin of a ripe pear

-How the cheesecloth appears to be floating through black space and time

-My daughter’s unwavering confidence and sense of self at the tender age of eleven

-Her immense comfort in asking questions about her growing body and the biology of change

-Blue hydrangeas blooming in the back

-The creeping Jenny sprouting, fluorescent, beneath the bush

-Reciting phrases in French

-Solitude, you exquisite, evasive thing

-Breathy lyrics over solemn keys. (See Kelsey Lu | Kid Koala's 'Music To Draw To' album)

-Music that sounds like my heart
