Update: FAWM OVER, WE WIN!!
Sorry to be so slow at listening and commenting, I will try to catch up!
Update 23 Feb: a laptop that's been a minor part of my FAWM workflow has decided to retire itself. Hugs and kisses to @rickatfulcrum for carrying some of my lo-fi things to completion where I'm not collaborating with another mixmaster! So, no excuses: I WILL be doing 14.5 songs in 29 days this year!
This is my fourth Leap FAWM.
Last Feb., I flew from NY, my home of the past 20 years, to CA to interview for a fancy new job. The new gig is busy and the new digs are small. Expect hushed vocals and hasty work.
Benediction: May our songs have many mothers and fathers!

Thank you for the inspirational prompt for ‘Im in a Frog’
Wanted to thank you again and reply to your comment on "just keep drivin". Keep drivin toward the sunset is a metaphor....leaving all the stuff behind me.....letting go and yes I want to be warm. 😀
Thanks, I also want to come back and check out where you’ve gone with it this month. ‘Change in the Weather’ has left quite an impression on me.
Song 7: working on it. Started something remotely interesting last night, want to get it a little less remote.
Just checking in to say, I haven't forgotten! Getting to the point where I'm looking outside instead of just inward so I'll revisit your notes. Fawm on! 😀
Hey Elaine, I have another one for you. 😀 Guitar chord progression and a couple lines of lyrics. I will record it this weekend and you can add your MAGIC to it, or what we would say, "your bent".
😁 😁 😁 😁 😁
Thank you very much for taking the time to listen to all of my songs and leave such kind comments. Truly appreciated.
The syllables were too fast for me truthfully. Don't know how rappers do it. 😀
Thanks for listening to My Sweet Baby and commenting.
Thanks for the great comments. I enjoy making up spoof botanical terms so much I can't actually tell what's real anymore ... and yes I totally knicked that self-auto-dezonging trick from you ...
Glad you liked what I did for your lyrics! In March I'm gonna do some tweaking, and, if it's okay with you, I'd love to release it under the Raygun Girls name?
Thanks for your comments.
Hope you like what I created!
Check yer email. 😁
My son worked there for three summers and convinced four of his cousins to work there... and they are starting their sixth year this spring. All have been supervisors and three are now hoping to develop a career in that field. My younger brother @guatecoop lives 20 minutes from there and my parents live 40 minutes away. I'm four hours, but it's always nice to visit family (and maybe hit the park) 😀
Thank you for your really thoughtful comment on ‘Alone’.
Thanks for the note. Things are rattling around in my noggin'...
Hi Elaine! Thank you for coming by to listen and comment!
Cheers for commenting Elaine. And yes, the piano is my main thing, it'll always be right there in the mix. 😀
Thanks for getting me into this - cant wait to hear your creations...;)
Thanks! 😁 I try, lol. Sonnets are infinitely more entertaining for me to write than just haikus or limericks. It's a challenge!
FAWM might be here but so is chaos. Although I've vented my spleen in impro song 1 having had the septic tank vented backwards by the flash flooding. I hope I can hold something together. Looking forward to at least a couple of DiMasi songs. I'm currently upsetting politicians on both sides of the divide, so I guess I'll be crying a "plague o' both your houses" before they silence me...
Thanks for the welcome!! I’m excited for this new adventurechallenge 😊 Happy FAWMing!
It was fresh in my mind because I had **just** finished a song where I used your advice to just hold a note as long as you can, and then, seeming on its own volition, it changed right at the end of the song and it made me say, "Oh, yeah! This is what Elaine meant!"
Fancy jobs rule!
Oh my! Your sonnet is a treat! Can we just have February Sonnet Writing Month?
Have a wonderful FAWM!
that book sounds awesome. xD i think the last zombie book i read was warm bodies, which also has a rather intelligent zombie 😝
Thank you, Elaine. That bar is set pretty high, too.
Happy FAWMing!! All the best to you!
One of the guys from Firefall lived across the street from me; I used to babysit his kid. Not the "Cinderella" writer, though.
Welcome back, and congratulations on the new gig. Have a great FAWM, Elaine.
Sure, I'm up for trying new adventures despite my early-fawm jitters. Speaking of adventures, gee whiz, you switched coasts!
I appreciate the busy new gig and relocation vibes--- I'm dealing with the same, but hope to get a FAWM out of it. I'll be listening!
Yup. Back in business. Good to see you here.
Happy FAWMing! New album title: Hushed and Hasty. I like it!
You had a grand idea. 😀
I was so eager to start, I began in December 😁
Well, now the suspense is killing me. 😀
For SURE! o/
Happy Leap of Fourth, Elaine!
Leaping for joy!
have the best FAWM this year!
