niña roja


i realized i often carry a lot of red things.
mittens, binoculars, canteen, makeup bag (with red lipcolor inside!), secret strawberry, umbrella.

when i paint, draw and write, i often (and lately, almost exclusively) listen to sacred harp singing, or "sharp note" sung hymns. it's the most haunting and joyful sounding music i've ever heard.
1*sung in a brick church with high windows and grandparents
2*sung in a bright room with families
3*sung on a cold february night

love, rebecca

OMG!!! i totally forgot about that!
it's because it's the best color ever.

i've got the very same pair of binoculars if you switch red for black. red's a very good color to carry around, i think.
