about

Humans gathered around a fire with instruments and thoughts. Luckily there were microphones handy and the whole thing was captured in a fleeting moment. Tamarinda sat writing the words to this song and doodling the pictures that would become this week’s artwork and she offered this piece of wisdom about the group around her:

“Something about how we sat around the fire all weekend - how there is so much warmth/love between us even though it’s winter... how it’ll last through to spring when we’ll thrive, and how winter sucks without friends.”

I agree with her that we need friends to get through the winter. Sometimes winter seems long. Perhaps it will never end and we’ll endure cold for eternity, and damn the thought is getting me down when I look to my left and Miguel has plastic lizards in his hair. Winter aint so bad!

lyrics

If what gets us by is fanning flames
Then call us cinders, let us fly
If we touch down soon, we’ll melt the snow
Embracing spring and what we know
For we were never meant to last
Amidst the winds of winters past

And so it goes
That we rely
On those we know
It’s takin’ time
