A while ago the Boston Globe published a story on the swans in the Public Garden. It turns out that the swans, known the world over as Romeo and Juliet, are in fact two females, and even hetero swan couples trade off on the normal gender-related roles. I went down to meet the swans, fell in love with their easy tranquility and their exquisite surroundings. I visited them morning, noon, and evening, (it was summer) and wrote them this valentine, Juli and Romy.
Here's the MP3 Turning the World, released last year.

Happy Valentine's day, all!
