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.........
