Excuse Me, Dentist?

January 17, 2024

That awkward moment when you realize that the silly-putty stuff you’ve had glued to the roof of your mouth due to a dental procedure last Thursday is now missing and the only logical explanation is that while you were eating those crackers for dinner (because you cannot drink another protein shake), you must have swallowed it.

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.
