"Oh, she may be weary
Young girls they do get weary ..."
-- Otis Redding, "Try a Little Tenderness"
|Self portrait 5-31-13|
“And then I remember this morning and I wonder
if it really happened or if I dreamed it.
It was nice. And weird. And tender.
I'm not used to tender. It's a fossil, that word.
Conditions changed and it died out. Like the woolly mammoth.”
-- Jennifer Donnelly, Revolution
