Influences: Folk is my favorite genre followed by celtic and good old rock & roll.
I'm the one on the right. My daughter and fellow FAWMer Dawn is to the left. I love it here. I've loved learning new instruments and meeting new people...and of course letting my muse have fun creating. My main 'instrument' is my voice, but I also play guitar, ukulele, banjo, mandolin, dulcimer, autoharp, steel drum, piano, flute, and a very robust cowbell.
A note on comments: I do not intend to make my living with my music, but do want to get better, so gentle constructive comments are very welcome. If there is a certain song I'm thinking I may want to do in public I will ask for serious critique on that song and hope you'll let me have it 😀
I'll probably roll the story cubes a few times, and whack a cowbell. Maybe play with a quote or a bit of scripture. I'm caring for my husband with Alzheimer's and my parents are nearing the end of their earthly journey so I'll be in and out of the FAWM world. I do love you all though!!
Nicknames because of FAWM: Princess of the Cowbell or just Princess, and Mistress Darci - from one rather suggestive collaboration in 2014.
Happy FAWMing everyone!

Thank you for the kind words about my song Caring Neighbours. I appreciate it. 😀
Thank you Darci for your kind comment on a Lonely Swan. My friend is devastated.
Thanks for commenting on my song "Insecure", I appreciate the listen!
Thanks for your sweet comments. My daughter in law could wait to see the leaves and the snow.
Hehe thanks! Probably not really enough focus on the cowbell to really justify the tag but I was excited to finally have something cowbell-friendly!
Thanks for your comments on Have a Great Day. I think it is nice to remember that we can start the day over again at any moment, especially when times are hard.
Thank you, Princess. 😀 xxx
Thanks so much for your comments on my skirmish song Rhymes with Orange. Sorry you hurt your nose snorting a warm beverage but glad you thought it was funny! 😀
I hope so too! I’ve got the words if you’ve got the music! If there is any subject or style you would like me to try writing for let me know!
Thanks for your kind comment on "Fork in the Road." <3 Many hugs to you!!! <3
Glad to see you in the Twin Cities group again, Darci! That FOP is one of my favorite FAWM memories; so great to meat you all "in the flesh." Good luck this year, I'm looking forward to hearing your songs. 👍
<3 <3 Eh-hem, well, my boo-boos have healed so I guess it's time to meet up again 😉 Have a super-de-dooper FAWMtastic February!!
