The Disappearing Fiancee
I was asked several times where my fiancee was. It strikes me as odd the number of people, even close friends who know me, who think that it's necessarily a tragedy for her to not come to a concert that I'm playing at. To tell you the truth, she knows more of me than anyone can glean from my songs. My lyrical ability is not so up-to-par as to be able to reveal all that I want to say. Though I do appreciate the sentiments in that regard. Thus, with her being already informed and sharing in my life already, there's not much to verbally communicate to her that is profound. And fortunately, Kat is usually the end of my search for profundity, since such an endeavor often begins with a step of pride anyway. I think it's great that she doesn't feel the need to come to every show I play at, and that I don't feel the need for her to do so. I love it when people love my music, and I love it even more when I connect with them through a story. But if everyone knew me as Katrina knows me, most would turn away in disgust. And yet she looks on me with love. As Paul said, "This is a profound mystery..."
