That’s Not Something You Think Every Day #13

December 13, 2023

Last night
Me: “Would you be interested in recording the cover of that song?”

Megan: “I am pretty booked up unless we do it tomorrow.”

Me: “I am teaching from 1:30 to 4:30, but the rest of the day is free.”

Megan: No response.

Me: *Waits patiently for response, goes in hot tub, falls asleep on couch.* 😉

This morning
Me (trying not to be a pest), “Would you rather record today? Or Saturday?”

Megan: “Ummm, it would be fun today! I have some things to do around the house so it’ll have to be after your students.”

Me: “Perfect. Is it terrible to wish that all my students would call in sick today?😉”

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.
