Well I did it. Thanks to everyone (my mom and Ada) for your helpful votes, which helped me decide which iphone case to get. And the final decision is……(insert drum roll)….
This one! It’s name is “You’re the Wind that Blows me Home“. I hope that that means the wind will blow this case to me really soon.

Triumph of the Pigs that Ran Straightaway into the Water
The Mountain Goats
“You’re gonna send me back to where I came from
Please don’t send me back to where I came from
Let me go where the white magnolias grow”

Hung out at a graveyard and a rock on the water last night.

We stood at the edge of
The water and sent the
Smooth stones we had gathered earlier sailing
Across the surface.
Ripples glided out
And suddenly I was hypnotized.
It was as though I had fallen through that center ripple
Straight down to the bottom of the lake.
In the quiet darkness
I could only feel the fish moving past me.
In that moment I was Saul,
Struck blind by God.
And the feeling of those scaly bodies sliding against my skin
Was all I needed to know that
All would be forgiven
As long as I just asked for it.
An invisible hand lifted me through the water
And as I broke the surface
My wings unfurled and I
Soared into the sun.
Not a modern Icarus,
Doomed for eternity,
But a liberated soul.
By the time I regained my sight
And opened my eyes
You had become concerned,
Asking me if I was alright.
I started to explain
But stopped because to rob you
Of your own
Would have been the undoing of my new found freedom.
