Dear NW Drizzle,
Thanks so much for the thoughtful article
about my new CD, "Goner." I'm so glad it's in heavy
rotation at your (and Amy's) house.
I have to admit, I got a little lump in my throat when I read
about your friend leaning over and whispering that I "had
issues." I'm not sure why that would choke me up, maybe
I was just ready for my daily breakdown. It's a little embarrassing,
actually to be announcing my brokenness to the world and now
(with a divorce and getting canned under my belt) having proof
Yes, I do need a hug ... and a hit, and come to think of it,
a patron, a sweetheart, a gin and tonic with double lime, a
bed of my own, and the certainty that I'm here for a damn good
reason, not just to sweat it out for some creepy (and ineffectual)
guardian angel's sadistic pleasure.
You know, it's funny. I remember that art-opening gig. It was
on my birthday and my boyfriend had left town for the week or
weekend with a girl friend of his to go to some event. I was
a little bit sad.
Anyway, thanks again for helping to spread the word.
