    I wanted to say how much I appreciated your comments on The Tiger In the Zoo. Felt like you got to the heart of those lyrics (and from what you wrote you’ve been there). After the face to face weekend was over, before I flew home I went to the zoo, where I ran into the tiger. And I eventually put the whole thing behind me, until I came across those emails this past February. You’re right, the imagination has complete freedom. The internet is a crazy place. @siebass was kind enough to put it to music, if you want to check it out.

  • @sunnymae  Apr 5

    Thanks Barbara. I'm going to print the lyrics so I have a reminder. I will work on it at some point for sure. Let's stay in touch. This should be cool!!

  • @sunnymae  Apr 2

    I must thank you again for your beautiful comments on Avalanche of Love. I appreciate the compliments on my guitar playing. I've developed a playing style that goes hand-in-hand with my vocals over these many years.
    Thank you Barbara. You are most kind.

  • @sunnymae  Apr 2

    Hey Barbara thanks for your amazing comments on can I get to you. Working out the vocals there for sure and I do love india-arie-and-erykah-badu and Macy Gray. I'm just getting to meet some new people even post FAWM. I look forward to getting to know your music better from this year and look forward to next year as well!

  • @zecoop  Mar 15

    For Rush geeks like me, the whole Rush story was clear from his speech, lol... Made me smile

  • @zecoop  Mar 15

    Just for this. One of the greatest acceptance speeches ever. Alex Lifeson said SO much without saying anything, lol. πŸ˜€

  • @tamsnumber4  Mar 13

    Thanks for commenting on my collab songs "Hope Beyond Hope" and "Reach For The Stars", I appreciate the listen!

  • @hanke7 Mar 12

    Thank you for your kind comments on we used to sing

  • @mikeb Mar 11

    Thanks for the listen and comment on my collab song with @hanke7

  • @zecoop  Mar 10

    I loved what I heard on the songs you recorded and will be checking out the others (and reading some lyrics) πŸ˜€

  • @zecoop  Mar 10

    So nice to see that FAWMku is still active. πŸ˜€

  • @musicsongwriter Mar 9

    Hi Barbara, thank you for your comment on my collaboration with Tammy.

  • @darcistrutt  Mar 9

    My first version of Easy Shed was over the top twang but I worried our county FAWMers would find it insulting so toned it down to be a little more subtle. It makes me smile that you picked it up.

  • @quork  Mar 8

    Hey, thank you for your listens and comments. Much appreciated.

  • @spinhead Mar 3

    I really appreciate your comment on Bells. Sharing the song with my wife has been helpful. And hearing positive things about the song helps too.

    I'm pretty sure that I can equivocate with the best of them, although I could be wrong! At least, I think that's the case, with some degree of probability, or something like that! Maybe! There could be other factors involved, and one absolute rule I've always mostly followed is that one should always try, if possible, which it isn't always of course, all known unknowns, knowing that there very well could be unknown unknowns, although we really can't know, amirite?

  • @toms  Mar 1

    Hm...a logical day in the life...hmmmm...there really is a great deal of beauty in logic, I mean, it could be done, and could be really something...that's kind of an awesome idea...but it'd require some serious attention...too good an idea to screw up by being overly cavalier about it...hmmmmm... πŸ˜€

  • @jamkar  Feb 28

    Gosh Barbara, your'e the first one to bring U2 into my comments! The only similarity to my ear is the minimalist approach to recording that we bring. But you are on board with that as well. I mean, how many people use a phone and their vocals to create beautiful music? *grins*

  • @mikeb Feb 27

    Try one of my collabs for something soft. Maybe

  • @tamsnumber4  Feb 24

    I am so behind and so terribly busy, this family seems to think I'm their mother or something and I keep setting you aside for a moment when I'm at peace and can enjoy you and give you my full attention and that moment has not come around, so I am here in all of my mess and distraction, but you are always a treat and I have been missing you.

  • @donna  Feb 23

    Thanks for letting me know. I've listened to the lovely song, and have updated my comment. πŸ˜‰

  • @gregwere Feb 23

    Glad you like Avalanche - thanks for the interest.

  • @jamkar  Feb 23

    Thank you for allowing me into your lyrics Barbara. Had a good time singing "I Am Not Broken"!

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 22

    Thanks for your comments!

  • @hanke7 Feb 20

    Thank you for your kind comments on milkyway!

  • @jamkar  Feb 20


  • @jamkar  Feb 20

    Thank you for giving my Pachalbel musing a listen, and your kind comments!

  • @nancyrost  Feb 18

    Thank you so much for your comment on the Crimson lyric. When you come back to it, I'm curious what you think it's about. I do have more specifics in mind, and wonder how it comes across.

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 18

    Thanks for checking out my songs and kind comments. Love your raccoon story!

  • @donna  Feb 17

    It's autobiographical. And the situation is in process. Writing the poem has been - to a small extent - cathartic.

  • @donna  Feb 17

    Thank you for your lovely comment on 'All The Way Out', Barbara.

    Your first assumption is correct.

  • @jwhanberry  Feb 17

  • @aesthetic72 Feb 17

    Hi! Thank you for such a sweet comment. Just wanted to let you know that Greg said it was fine to make it downloadable. So I did via soundcloud. πŸ˜€

    Dot org.? β€˜Org.’ could also be an abbreviation for many things🀐

  • @darcistrutt  Feb 16

    The grandkids do love to work off of each other’s ideas! They look forward to helping me each February. Thanks for your visit!

  • @cindyrella  Feb 15

    Haha on Leroy! Yes, somehow L became my focus

  • @cindyrella  Feb 15

    We do need a 27 club!

  • @mkd  Feb 14

    Thanks so much for listening to Dear June! Although the pencil sounds weren’t an illustration, (I like that idea!) they were the actual words of the song being written free-flow, so a real integral part to it!

  • @spingo  Feb 13

    I was happy someone picked up on "your daughter"--I meant, I think, in the way that parents say that of their shared child when they're being a pain. "You'll never guess what your daughter did today."

    Thanks for the kind words!

    "&->=<Γ—["&@!"&$*!(%&"(@, right?

  • @adnama17  Feb 13

    It's my FAWM and I'll bracket if I want to!
    It's a habit. πŸ˜€

  • @piney  Feb 13

    Thanks for your listens and comment πŸ˜€

  • @toms  Feb 10

    Who read the books? 😁

  • @adnama17  Feb 10

    How the hell am I so far behind on your stuff??? I'm a terrible, terrible friend. 😞

  • @toms  Feb 10

    On the other hand, the extremely high tolerance for boredom made both the J.D. and the Ph.D. possible. 😁

  • @toms  Feb 2019

    I have a mutation that makes me mostly unteachable. True story! πŸ˜€

  • @toms  Feb 2019

    Goodness, no teacher, just a huge fan! πŸ˜€

  • @musicsongwriter Feb 2019

    Hi Barbara, thank you for your kind comment and message. Yes, amazing theme for skirmish. Very interesting to hear the takes.
    Have a great FAWM.

  • @bking  Feb 2019

    Hey there HB. Sorry I'm late, but I think I might be able to scratch that itch.

  • @bradbrubaker  Feb 2019

    Thanks for stopping by! As for getting caught up on what's happening in Dive Bar Devotional, unfortunately you won't get the full picture since (A) much of the stuff was written outside of FAWM and (B) it is a work in progress being very much restructured. But, based on your lovely comments, the tunes seem to make sense and have an impact as individual pieces. πŸ˜€

  • @tunecat Feb 2019

    Why not indeed!

  • @tunecat Feb 2019

    Hi there! Thanks for your comment and fondest memories of last year's collabs

  • @tiller2  Feb 2019

    Thank you, friend, for the tip about adding the letter to the skirmish number. Glad to see you back, and have a great fawm!

    Hi Barbara. I see anti-Klaus has already left a message. But new and improved Klaus ( no anti- ) is more polite and upbeat! So nice to see you, again, Barbara! Have a fortunate Fawm 2019. πŸ˜€

  • @timfatchen  Jan 2019

    Ah Barbara. I'll try to get my act together better this year but still at sea for the second half!

  • @pcob1993  Jan 2019

    Yayyyyyyyyy girl, so lovely to hear from you. Let's have a blast... I have the 'flu the last few days but I'll teach the body who's master, the slovenly, ungrateful wretch....

  • @fuzzy  Jan 2019

    Let's rock this thing!!

  • @klaus  Jan 2019

    Hi Barbara. Thank you very much for your comments. It already feels a lot like Fawm, warm and fuzzy and lovely. Hrmph....I mean cold and gloomy, but in a good way. πŸ˜€ Good to see you.

  • @letyourhairdown  Jan 2019

    Thank you so much... We certainly hope to write more this year! We just finished a new song, if you have any interest. Looking forward to FAWM and whatever you can bring too! πŸ˜€
