"And yet, just like a romantic relationship that has run its course, there’s a way that you know something’s over in your bones way before you’re ready to admit it to yourself or anyone else. Looking back, I think that taking a hiatus was a way for us to avert a full-fledged existential crisis - a way to see other people, as it were. And it seems it’s taken a solid year to fully accept what is really happening. We’re moving on."
"There are a lot of dates that we could conceivably use to celebrated the anniversary of Girlyman . There’s the date that we first performed under the name “Girlyman” (Feb. 3, 2002), the date we first arranged “Montpelier” for three voices in a car together (Aug. 1, 2001), the date Doris & Ty met (Sept. 1981). But the date that we most often use is the date that we scheduled our first rehearsal: Sep. 11, 2001."
"During the last few months of Girlyman, I was starting to see more clearly how unhappy I was being on the road, on tour, and even up on stage. I think everyone, to a certain extent, could see the signs of weakness in our emotional infrastructure. I know for me, personally, I was not able to even see clearly who I was outside of all the dynamics that engulf such a tight-knit group. I found myself simply longing to know what *I* thought, or what *I* wanted to do, and at the time I couldn’t even answer those questions for myself. So I knew that the right thing for me to do was to get off the road, stop being in the band, and spend some time with Me. This was a different kind of scary than the cancer, but equally life-threatening if I *didn’t* do it."
