about swallow

i am a tiny, insignificant Swallow caught in the storm of life, sometimes flying, sometimes spiraling toward the ground. but always caught just in time by the grace of God.


books i like to read: Blue Like Jazz by Donald Miller, books by Anne Lamott, Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte, Haiku by Richard Wright, the Bible


music i like: Bach, Bright Eyes, Coldplay, Wilco, Cowboy Junkies, Muse, Over the Rhine, The Killers, Bob Dylan, Death Cab for Cutie, Sufjan Stevens, Elliott Smith, Radiohead, Blue October, The Decemberists, Rich Mullins, Sam Cooke, Otis Redding, Flogging Molly, U2, The Cranberries


tv shows i like: The Office, Heroes, Arrested Development, stuff on PBS


misc. stuff i like: talking to God, writing, being thrifty, healthy food, vintage stuff, the smell of wood smoke, recycling, garage sales, hiking, animals, painting, reading, listening to live music (but i loathe live-recorded music), spending time with family, graphic design, traveling, trees, driving, fighting for the underdogs


One response to “about swallow

  1. Our company has just engineered and innovated the first biodegradable paper jar for our certified organic creams. They’re compostable down to the label adhesive and glaze. It’s the ultimate green package – great for the skin (USDA Certified Organic) and great for the environment. When empty, compost in your garden. We’re not taking out a patent, but instead leaving the field open for other companies to follow our lead and reduce the plastic overload.

    We would really appreciate your reviewing our product and its new package. If you are interested, let us know and I’ll email a press release and photos. Our creams and shea butter will be appearing on the shelves this month, and we would be glad to send you some samples.
