"i'm not a invisible. i'm sort of just hidden. like a chameleon, but without the taste for insects." - elizabeth crane, when the messenger is hot
"why was fabulousness important? the world was a scary, sad place and adornment was one of the only ways she knew to make herself and the people around her forget their troubles." - francesca lia block, necklace of kisses
that other picture that was up on my blog with no caption would have been a much better one, but i didn't take it so it doesn't count. mom's big request for her funeral was "more singing less talking" so there were hymns and the choir and the sacred harp singers. and of course sacred harp blew them all out of the water. no one does happy death songs like the puritans. i think modern music is like modern life- too separated from death. and as soon as i came back to chicago was the chicago anniversary sing, so i thought i should go. i ended up leading a song which i Never Ever do. it was this one, which was sung at mom's funeral and was very emotional.
