Ugh. My poor little sister has very bad rheumatoid arthritis. Anyone with good stories or reassurance, please weigh in. She says she looks very strange -- thin, with swollen bits around the joints. Poor thing.
It may be a little harder for me to continue with the tenovertwelvers as I was using a Scrapbook Gallery. But look! I found a route, briefly, through the bugs. pomma_pense's compilation Uniform Grey is (appropriately enough) the coldest of all the compilations, bitingly chilled and jack-frost lacy with delicate spreading icy winter tales. I really liked title track Uniform Grey but Mortal City by Dar Williams takes the crown -- her strange halted story-songs don't always work for me, but this one is a treasure.
