“It’s the anniversary of Calla’s transformation, so we decide to make her starkflower stew together and pour it for her. But I miss her so much I can hardly stand it, and now I’m breaking down in front of you—and I hate doing that.”
"You just burst into my flower shop trying to get last-minute flowers for Mother’s Day, but you have no idea what you want, and every flower type you suggest is worse than the last one.”
“We were all ready for a nice picnic, and then it started pouring rain. I’m freaking out, but you decide that we should make the most of the rain. Before I know it, we’re dancing in the puddles, and things don’t feel so scary anymore because I have you.”

Emrik was still a boy, so he didn't understand why girls gather on a festive night and light bonfires, pick flowers and herbs. Why wreaths on Kupala night was woven and was allowed on the water.
"If you are destined to get married this year, the guy on the other side of the river will find your wreath. So he is your betrothed," his mother answered him.
"Can I weave wreaths too?"he asked. Mother just threw up her hands and became sad.
Only after 10 years the guy will understand why the heart did not feel anything for any girl and why it hurts so much at the sight of this young man. Why, when Emrik look at him, thoughts freeze, and hearing a snake's whisper cloudes his head.Perhaps he is fall in love.

ngl i'm super curious about the full lucy dacus album being released friday. i'm into the tracks she's released so far, but kinda miss the grungier tones / lofi influence on her no burden album, but am interested in the direction she's heading with tracks like brando. lorde's new solar power track is headed in a similar direction, which i think is fascinating. i suppose it makes sense as these women grow older and more confident in themselves, but it's an interesting parallel. i'd pre-ordered lucy dacus', bob schneider's, and the mountain goats' new albums coming out this summer, and the mountain goats' arrived this past friday (though the official release is also this friday) and i really like it. i enjoyed getting into knives, but really appreciated the sense of calm throughout this album. i wonder if they're going to do another angstier album like talahasse in the future (though ngl i'd love for them to explore something conceptually to the degree they did with goths - writing an indie rock/folk album with pop influences about goth music? fucking brilliant). also looking forward to the new squirrel flower album. anyway i'm just rambling... i worked from home today so i was playing music from my computer rather than spinning records or listening to the live stream at the station, and i'm also thinking about reaching out to john darnielle for an interview. hmm.
