I took a day trip to Philly on Thursday to see the Lee Miller exhibit at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. While I was there, I also checked out the Frida Kahlo exhibit. Both were wonderful. I especially enjoyed the Lee Miller photos.

Then I spent the day with my wonderful and amazing friend Bree who moved to Philly one week ago. Lucky me 🙂 !

Help My Dear Friend Billy from Pela

A Message from PELA

Hello all,

So we’ve got an update of sorts. All of you will be happy to hear that Billy is on the path to recovery and he has begun physical therapy that will continue for the next 6 weeks.

Now that the dust has settled it brings to light the reality of medical and life expenses. It also outlines the healthcare system and how unforgiving it is.

Billy’s had help from a great organization called MusiCares. While MusicCares are helping where they can, there is a growing amount of bills that cannot be covered. And the fact that only one arm is fully functioning means that Billy has no way to go to work and pay any of these bills that are adding up to thousands and thousands of dollars.

So we’ve decided to set up a PayPal account for donations.

For everyone wondering how they can help, this is the best way we’ve figured out to make that happen. Thanks again to everyone that has been supportive during this time period.
