singing

one of the creative artsy things i do is sing. i don’t know how to record myself with my laptop and besides i am kind of shy about singing around others. i do sing a lot though in fact there are days when i sing almost all day long. dmitri may grow up thinking that life is like a musical and it is totally normal for people to just burst into song just because the mood strikes. dmitri has been known to sing as well and he can sort of carry a tune. singing is the one creative act i do daily no matter what and without having to try. it just happens like breathing happens. i wonder how common it is for people to sing the way i do. am i an anomaly or is this something everyone does and people just don’t talk about it? i almost exclusively sing songs i have made up myself and while i won’t share a recording i will share some lyrics. this song has been inspired by the aphids that are taking over one of my fava bean plants.

lady bird lady bird come out and play
come out today
if you come out you can eat at
the all you can eat aphid buffet
