They asked me "Why do you love this track? I attempted to explain. The result was an examination of everything from the stage fright one experiences upon leaving the womb to the relief brought on by weeping vs. that of sneezing. Over time the "Save" button became a paler shade of blue, indicating that my thoughts could not be saved. I wish. The lack of character limits in my brain results in many a tearful night. It is on these nights that I will take comfort in the music of Emma Ruth Rundle.

"Forever, as the Setting Son" was written and recorded in a humble lofi setting in Los Angeles some years ago. Yes it's "Son" and yes it's noisey and emotional. All reasons why I couldn't bring myself to ever retrack this song. I find myself filled with grief these days, similar to that expressed in the song, over many of the issues we as humans, as tenants of the Earth, will face in the coming era. While I am unable to join the marches set to take place all over the US on Saturday, I would like to offer this song and will be donating all the proceeds to Planned Parenthood. I have been grateful for them in my life, as a young woman, and hope that we can come together to preserve the future of such an important institution in this divisive time, so that they may continue to provide care for people of all races, religions, sexes, countries of origin, all genders. Be excellent to each other.
About the Planned Parenthood Action Fund:
The Planned Parenthood Action Fund exists to ensure that elected officials support policies and programs that help women and their families make responsible choices about family planning and reproductive health.
Planned Parenthood believes in the fundamental right of each individual, throughout the world, to manage his or her fertility, regardless of the individual's income, marital status, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, national origin, or residence. We believe that respect and value for diversity in all aspects of our organization are essential to our well-being. We believe that reproductive self-determination must be voluntary and preserve the individual's right to privacy. We further believe that such self-determination will contribute to an enhancement of the quality of life and strong family relationships.
Based on these beliefs, and reflecting the diverse communities within which we operate, the mission of Planned Parenthood is
to provide comprehensive reproductive and complementary health care services in settings which preserve and protect the essential privacy and rights of each individual
to advocate public policies which guarantee these rights and ensure access to such services to provide educational programs which enhance understanding of individual and societal implications of human sexuality to promote research and the advancement of technology in reproductive health care and encourage understanding of their inherent bio-ethical, behavioral, and social implications.
