That’s Not Something You Want To Happen #11

September 24, 2023

That moment when you are in the middle of watching a “Dateline” rerun after a hectic day and you’ve had a hankering for Coconut Kenny’s pizza for weeks and weeks and then decide you should probably get Papa Murphy’s instead because it’s a bit cheaper and then you finally make the choice not to get either brand altogether because you don’t really need it and this commercial comes on smack-dab in the middle of your show. 😩

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.
