The Be Good Tanyas
What do you get when you mix a rooster with a game hen?
A little bird, of course.
It's no joke (though I have had to convince a few people otherwise, including my mom). It is uplifting though, and that's what we're dealing with these days. Fourteen weeks in to the "creative process" and I am gaining momentum in my belly and excitement in my soul. It's not so much the anticipation or wanting to rush to the finish line, it's more about wondering how our life will grow, how we will change, and who this little person will be. It's so exciting to imagine the possibilities.
Now that I'm through the wilderness of the first trimester, I have given my superstitious self a seat at the back of the bus. Now I've shifted focus to picking through the bits and pieces of life and art that I've collected in my heart over the years. These are the lovelies I want to share with my kid. I imagine all the great things we will come to discover over the course of this adventure.
Years back my friend, RH, introduced me to The Be Good Tanyas and I found myself in love with this song. Silly as it seems, I've always known I would play it for my kid one day and probably sing it to him or her as well (a nod to my lost singing career).
Dear little bird, we can't wait to see you in October!
