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.
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!!
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.
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!
For Rush geeks like me, the whole Rush story was clear from his speech, lol... Made me smile
Thanks for commenting on my collab songs "Hope Beyond Hope" and "Reach For The Stars", I appreciate the listen!
Thank you for your kind comments on we used to sing
I loved what I heard on the songs you recorded and will be checking out the others (and reading some lyrics) 😀
So nice to see that FAWMku is still active. 😀
Hi Barbara, thank you for your comment on my collaboration with Tammy.
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.
Hey, thank you for your listens and comments. Much appreciated.
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?
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... 😀
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*
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.
Thanks for letting me know. I've listened to the lovely song, and have updated my comment. 😉
Glad you like Avalanche - thanks for the interest.
Thank you for allowing me into your lyrics Barbara. Had a good time singing "I Am Not Broken"!
Thanks for your comments!
Thank you for your kind comments on milkyway!
Thank you for giving my Pachalbel musing a listen, and your kind comments!
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.
Thanks for checking out my songs and kind comments. Love your raccoon story!
It's autobiographical. And the situation is in process. Writing the poem has been - to a small extent - cathartic.
Thank you for your lovely comment on 'All The Way Out', Barbara.
Your first assumption is correct.
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. 😀
We are on the same page👍🏻🍒
Dot org.? ‘Org.’ could also be an abbreviation for many things🤐
The grandkids do love to work off of each other’s ideas! They look forward to helping me each February. Thanks for your visit!
Haha on Leroy! Yes, somehow L became my focus
We do need a 27 club!
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!
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!
It's my FAWM and I'll bracket if I want to!
It's a habit. 😀
Thanks for your listens and comment 😀
Who read the books? 😁
How the hell am I so far behind on your stuff??? I'm a terrible, terrible friend. 😞
On the other hand, the extremely high tolerance for boredom made both the J.D. and the Ph.D. possible. 😁
I have a mutation that makes me mostly unteachable. True story! 😀
Goodness, no teacher, just a huge fan! 😀
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.
Hey there HB. Sorry I'm late, but I think I might be able to scratch that itch.
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. 😀
Why not indeed!
Hi there! Thanks for your comment and fondest memories of last year's collabs
Thank you, friend, for the tip about adding the letter to the skirmish number. Glad to see you back, and have a great fawm!
Can’t wait to see what your gonna bring...
That's the plan!
Hi, Barbara! Looking forward to hearing your tunes soon!! 😀 Happy FAWMing!
Hello Barbara, I look foward to hearing some songs from you, Have a great FAWM,
Hello Barbara, thanks for the visit. Not sure I'll get to anything myself but i will try to give a listen as I am able 😀
Happy FAWM! 😀
Back again! Hope you have a good time with FAWM this year.
Hi Barbara. Happy FAWM time. Let's all have a great month.
Hi, Barbara! Great to see you here again. Yes, Albuquerque is wonderful - so glad we made the move! Look forward to hearing your wonderful songs. Happy FAWMing!
Hey Barbara! Happy FAWM!
And then there was FAWM and all the creative delights and wonderful distractions that contributed to our already crowded and crazy worlds... have to love it! Looking forward to your music!
Happy new FAWM, Barbara!
Hey Barbaly---Going to give it a try---howEver Musey is still sulky from being neglected for 2 years
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. 😀
Ah Barbara. I'll try to get my act together better this year but still at sea for the second half!
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....
Welcome back again, I’ll be listening for your tunes.
Hey there gorgeous! Come here often?
Some gorgeousness over in those multicolored succulents, too! Here's to a wonderful blossoming of mysteries!
Ahh the last hope of dream pop returns 😀
AND THE UNIVERSE smiles on us once more! Toss your music up into the air and let it rain down on me! Happy to see you my friend!
Haha, I'm not sure you would want me to entirely abandon my internal censor!
Let's rock this thing!!
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. 😀 Good to see you.
