thesaturdaygirl: (birds and books (threadless))
I'm probably going to do a pretty drastic friends cut. It's just a weird time in my life, so I feel much more vulnerable that I normally do, and I find myself not posting here because of that vulnerability or...well I don't know why, really. It's not like anyone specific is leading me to feel like I can't share. But I've never been a filter person -- it just feels weirdly dishonest (and also, just a hassle!) and some gut feeling is leading me to believe I need to keep this place a little more cozy right now. Not sure when I'll do it, but sometime in the coming days. I hope there are no hard feelings.

in your boat, tied to a tree
i hope you'll find the sea

throw me a dream please, it's been a dreamless sleep
for such a long time, such a long time
sing myself awake
watch the branches break
no one could ever take your place

wash your face in the lake
you've got a diamond under your skin

how we became three, part two )

note: i'm posting my birth story in two sections because it's mammoth, thanks to my well-known compulsion to record every tiny detail. also i'm trying to finish a few pieces of the second half today but wren is being a nursing fiend and i have not yet figured out the trick to nak, so i thought i'd go ahead and post at least the first installment. this will also make it easier to skip all the 'pre-game' talk for those of you who are just interested in the more active birth part.

when the birds are sleeping
that's when the trees sing
you left your winter clothes,
and your teeth marks in my skin

so shake the leaves, off the trees,
watch them float down the stream
your son, your daughter
swimming in the water

little did i know this would be my last belly shot and that, exactly a week later, i would be in a birth tub trying to push my baby out. )
