Bun

I have been so quiet on the internet over the last few months. I know that this blog has not been exactly active for a long, long time, but recently, I have retreated from even Instagram (actually, taking a break from the internet of things feels pretty good). There is a sort-of reason for that, other than the fact that I tend to go on and off stuff rather abruptly.

The truth is, I have been distracted by the bun that I’m growing. Only this time, it is not on my head (like the sock bun that I cultivated previously), but in my belly (which, I am happy to report, is swelling in a most satisfactory way). And this time, I am about a million times more obsessed than before.

So, I guess that there are three of us now : )

But I want her to know, that this world is made up of sugar. It can crumble so easily, but don’t be afraid to stick your tongue out and taste it.

-Sarah Kay, If I Should Have A Daughter…

I don’t know the gender of the baby yet, but when I think about having a daughter, one of the things that come to mind is this funny, touching and generally very lovely piece of spoken word poetry by Sarah Kay that I first watched a few years ago.

And with a little editing, it can definitely work for a boy as well.
