|| the red tent, by anita diamant || this is my second time reading the red tent. it’s incredible really. reading of the rituals and rites and celebrations and griefs of these women following the lines of the women before them (though it’s historical fiction) heightens the pride and honor and blessing i feel to be both a woman and a mother.

|| the lion’s roar, by first aid kit || i’m annoying jp by listening to this album over and over again. i may just run out the grooves on the record i recently bought. but ramona digs it too, bobbing her head to the folky tunes of these two young swedish sisters who have a knack for some pretty great lyrics.

what books have you read more than once? what albums do you play over and over?

    oh my. I am in love with First Aid Kit too. Others I’ve been listening to on repeat are… This is the Kit, Lemolo, Pickering Pick (the album with the butterfly on front), and Foreign Fields. I’ve been meaning to do a music post because I recently re-discovered my love for actually seeking out new music. Usually I’m too lazy and end up listening to the same old stuff I’ve loved for years.

questions, comments, feedback? please leave a note for me below. i'd love to hear from you!
