I also pre-ordered a book by Kate Molleson called Sound Within Sound that talks about ten 20th century composers in which Emahoy is one.
Found a great BBC radio documentary about Emahoy Tsegué-Mariam Guèbru. I just love her music so much so this was a treat to listen to.
“Steel Magnolias” it is.
Just kidding, very excited about it.
Mothers, Illness, Death, Plants
A few times a week I send my mom photos of flowers and plants we see on our hikes and walks. Ellen and I are working on turning our barren front yard into a lush forest of native plants. It makes me sad to think that my mom may never get to see it once the plants have matured in a year or two. And just that she may never get to see our new house or visit us in Portland again.
We'll know more later this week, but it's hard to stay optimistic.
My dad was watching The Addams Family when I was visiting the other day and this line caught our ear: https://youtube.com/clip/UgkxkT2LNtPOmtDsuDX-aW1OAUEi7ZOw7kQn
Super excited to see Advance Base play in Portland in a few weeks. Never did get to see CFTPA play.
Found another good option for Frog Shirt Summer. https://catchinglizards.net/products/fr-g-tee-pre-order
The shirt reminds me of the heavy cast iron frog my dad has had since before I was born - and the replica I bought - and the tiny other replica I bought.
We should all buy this cool frog shirt. It’s about to be Frog Shirt Summer. https://twitter.com/emodog98/status/1509982148719165444?s=21&t=QwHNMqqG22lfdFxNWlpoTw
