The Prognosis

Many long days and nights have passed me by with this strange broken bone. Last Tuesday I learned that my beloved little bone had not healed at all over the past month. This news depressed me................................... and then strengthened my resolve.

It may not seem like such a big deal (a broken bone in your foot), but for this very tough albino blindo, having a broken foot has strangely been the most debilitating thing I have ever had to focus on, head on, and in a weird way it has been forcing me to deal with other strange hang-ups that come from a lifetime of stubborn independence.

So, I have been stuck in my tower, trying to force myself not to hobble around, booking flights to far off places, writing songs obsessively in 12/8, making movies, watching Hugh Laurie in everything he has ever done, getting use to the idea of myself as a solo musician/performer, drinking comfry tea and feeling like I am letting everyone down.

Here is Feist et all doing something cool.........

Every summer...why, oh why?

I guess I like the pain of being a part of this crew.  Let's make food for lots of kids, in the summer heat of coastal South Carolina, under a tent, and not sleep enough!!

Get back to work!!!! I might look angelic, but I can assure you, that is far from the truth.

I haven't had this much fun since I broke my foot

Recently my fun times are happening every few weeks.

This first fun with my two darlings Lucy and Linnea, making a leg bouquet on Alex's couch.
A few weeks later in the hospital with a broken foot and slashed tendons.  You may be able to tell I had been having a lot of fun before this happened, well I guess I was having fun in the ER too.
Then, a few weeks after that: after being house ridden and disliking it immensely I was at the funnest house show of all time.  This is not my hat.
This lawn music was only the beginning of the fun!!!

Fox Teeth begins!

Our darling lydia See took this photo, before we even had the thought we might need promo for our awesome band: Fox Teeth.   

The music is magical, and I feel very lucky to get to play the songs that come from the inner life of Joti Marra.

Here is a song from our debut at the Grey Eagle opening for Floating Action (an amazing band).  And there in the corner is darling Tyler Ramsey
