ash is four today

anthony david karl palmer gaiman, aka ash, is 4 years old today.

pictured here: the men i love and pianos, 2015 + 2019.


this is ash just a few days after he was born down at the farm in tennessee, in the arms of babydaddy neil, who was trying to lull him with lou reed’s “walk on the wild side” (one of the two songs he knows on piano – the other one is “science fiction double feature” from rocky horror)…


and this ash a few days ago at the wedding we attended in northern scotland, playing the piano with his chin (whatever works). this was the day ash composed his first song (it was about a fox who ran into the woods. then he followed it up with a song about a scary snake).

happy birthday, ash.

i love you, i love your dad, i love music, and i can’t wait to hear what else you make.

home to london for the birthday day then back to tour in germany tomorrow.

this patron-based system and ash were born only a few months apart.

i love how these two families will always intertwine, and i love how real it all feels. you all have seen me through some seriously intense life-times. it’s a two-way street. i see you all, too.

thank you all for being a part of my logical family.

especially because i am mid-tour and fresh off an emotional stage in graz last night … i am just goddamn overflowing with gratitude today.

love to all of you, to whatever choices you’ve made, and to wherever and whoever you are
