Last time I was on the west coast my friend Will invited me to visit his sister Monica at her treatment center & play some songs for her. While we were there we started talking about how a song's narrative can fit alongside your life, & how when it intertwines, you feel stronger & less alone. That led to the idea of Will & Monica making a short movie the last few days of his visit, to express Monica's story in parallel to Size of the Moon. The result is an open window into one person's experience living with Advanced Chronic Lyme Disease. It shows the emotional yoyoing of it — by turns monotonous, sad, hopeful, surreal — an intense microcosm of everything it is to be alive. The video represents my friends' expression of Monica's story & we're honored to have our song occupy the same space for a moment.
If you can, please consider making a contribution to her treatment fund. www.gofundme.com/5nsrmm9c much love.
