That’s Not Something You Think Every Day #17

April 16, 2024

I went to check my dahlias a few weeks ago—the ones I’m trying to overwinter in the garage—and they’re all dead. 😭 (These are the tubers from my mom. I’ve talked about them before.)

I have a sneaking suspicion that she is looking down from heaven saying, “I told you you wouldn’t be able to keep them alive.” 😂

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.
