Stretch, bend, snap and bind: like-mindedness and marriage and a few other meandering thoughts
My husband is playing the guitar on the other side of the room, and I keep opening and closing browser tabs trying to decide what I have to say here right now or whether I have anything to say at all, or whether to close the whole thing down and play Candy ...
