Clinging

February 18, 2023

I took this picture in Idaho several years ago

Usually these attacks hit me in the dead of night: 3:00 a.m. seems to be the average. Why then? Beats me.

Just starting another one…been building up to it all day.

I feel like throwing things. 😭

Instead, I’m going to do my best to listen to the demo recording I made the other night, hopefully come up with some ideas, but most of all, I’m going to cling to those words that I penned back before this all started.

About Marie de Haan

Marie is a gifted pianist, playing since the age of nine. As a teenager, she composed mainly instrumental piano music. She released her powerful debut single, “I Am Broken,” on October 22, 2020, a song whose creation drew heavily upon the trauma she endured as a victim of childhood sexual abuse. Marie held a benefit concert on September 10, 2021, in Skagit County. A portion of the proceeds went to CrossRoads Youth Ranch; this local organization—through equine therapy—empowers “at-risk and sexually exploited youth to heal, grow, and thrive.” She has continued to write music: Christian, folk, and country. Marie loves hiking, gardening, and photography. The Pacific Northwest—where she lives with her husband—is the backdrop for her favorite activities.
