Fallen flowers, blank pages

I’ve got both my browser and my journal/sketchbook open as if staring at two blank pages is easier than one.


I’ve been obsessing over the 2014 song “Coffee” by the band Sylvan Esso, in which the chorus repeats the lines, “Get up, get down.” That’s because I’ve been suffering for months from a sore tailbone that makes me dread sitting and a also condition called meralgia paresthetica, which makes my left thigh burn when I stand. As I got up and got down over and over in his office, my pain physician told me it was hurting him just to watch me.
