who's left and who's leaving

come thursday, my children are moving to georgia. i came home, home (b-town) to say goodbye. my baby-girl xcy, who is a little over two and a half, was all stressed out but found contentment on my lap. katana was running a fever and sick, but that didn't stop her talking (it's when she stops talking that you know she is really sick). and vahid made me realize that my kids aren't going to be my kids forever...

tah: vahid, go give anya a hug and a kiss.

vahid: okay, but only hugs. no kisses.

one day, each one of them will grow out of giving me kisses, just how they are slowly growing out of their "i heart anya" t-shirts.

today was a hard day.

My city's still breathing (but barely it's true)
through buildings gone missing like teeth.
The sidewalks are watching me think about you,
sparkled with broken glass.
I'm back with scars to show.
Back with the streets I know.
Will never take me anywhere but here.

about five months or so ago, i went itunes crazy. no, i didn't buy any music i just wondered around the store and dropped a whole lot into my shopping cart. i listened to tons of their previews and if i liked it or was on the border of liking it, i added it. about two months ago i opened my cart, became overwhelmed, and deleted a bunch of those songs. tonight, i went back all ready to buy a different song, but puzzled by my multiple buying options i re-stumbled upon "last night" by julie doiron.

looking for a good stumble? download it (in the legal sense of the term).

last night
i held you in my arms
and i started to cry
and you looked up
and sqeezed your hands
onto my head
like you knew why

and it was so right
