So it's 2021. What a crazy world we're living in.
These are shades-down days and I need some shades up sunlight to beam through. I'm missing faces, expressions, hearing a person's laughter, seeing kids play together outside in the sparkling snow or sun, even rain with them laughing and having fun or singing together, not told to play six feet apart. I want the old normal back for them. Out of my hands, but can I get that here? I think not. Who ever thought the small pleasures of life would be forbidden. Masks hide faces and expressions, air hugs just aren't up to snuff. I miss 3D. If you can write the memory of it, and convince me in my mind, I may come by to visit your song, but tag me, so I don't have to sift through the dark stuff, good though it might be, not what I need right now.
Probably not going to collab this year, but maintaining my policy here for potential future use when I'm ready for that sort of action.
With Write&Wrong's permission, I snagged her collaboration policy. Collaborations are welcome during FAWM under the agreement that the collaborations are for fun and learning within the FAWM community and not beyond the confines of this community. They will not be considered joint works. All contributions will be individually owned unless other agreements are made in advance in writing. Please do not post any collaborations we do outside of the FAWM communities without asking permission first.

Thank you for the lovely comments on Moss and Lichen. But yes I did take care of the cemetery.
Thanks for listening and commenting on my collab song with kristi "I Can't Wait", I appreciate it!
Thank you KC!!!! 😀 You are a true friend and a wonderful encouragement to me.
Feel free to use it in one of your lyrics! I may do so myself, I still have a bunch of stuff I want/need to do over the next 4 days.
YES! We certainly do enjoy a nice juicy cantaloupe although my mama used to call them mush melons! That is a funny story about catching the opossum in a trap. I have a 3rd cousin who lives somewhere up in New England who was caught in one of those humane traps once. He thought he was a goner!
Well, thanks again for listening to my songs.
Just wanted to thank you for listening to my music! I'm trying really hard to be more than a common marsupial!
Thank you so much for your lovely comment on 'Carpet of Needs'. 😊Theresa did such a wonderful job with it.
Great advice. Fits very well with the direction I was heading in. Thanks for giving me a head start.
Thank you! Life's been a bit challenging at the moment. Fasting to deal with some digestive and blood sugar issues from over a decade of abuse not treating my body like the machine that it is and just work-a-holic-ing. Been on a bone broth and citrus diet for the week.
Plus my voice is in terrible shape. Sleeping in today is the first time I feel like my voice isn't "hanging by a thread." Teaching in spread-out rooms with a mask is a very poor proposition for vocal health. I guess it's back to working on lyrics to start! It is my weak point. I also need to dust off my production skills, so it's gonna be doing whatever I can.
It's always a delight to work with you, dear friend.
No worries....I have been doing more collaborations than purely my own work this year, anyway. If you do decide to do a collab, feel free to shoot me an email and we can discuss.
Thank you for you kind and thought provoking comments on my song, really useful 😀 I think the underlying message was the person of their affection was broke (in the narrators eyes) when they met and they feel they fixed them up. But they then feel that this person threw it back in their face hence ‘you tore a sore for every sore, I healed, do you not feel a thing?’ I think I deliberately left it open to interpreation in terms of what the other person did, I more wanted to capture that the emotion of the narrator, who perceived the other person had wronged them in some way, when they had only show love and commitment. I 100% agree though it’s hard to know wha to leave to interpretation and what to express - hopefully during FAWM I’ll do a mixture of both 😀
Would be more than delighted to add music to bacon if you're interested.
It's always good to see your stuff and to read it and to imagine possible tunes for it...
(PS: your profile says '50/90' and I think you mean FAWM 😉)
Happy FAWMing look forward to interacting this month!
Hi, KC, hope all is well and that you are hanging in there. What a crazy year it's been... Best wishes to you on a fantastic FAWM 2021! 💖🎵
Hope you have a great FAWM 😀
Hey KC! Just 1 week till FAWM! A crazy world, indeed!
With all the turmoil since last FAWM, & especially since November, it's hard to feel quite as amped up about it.
"Unnecessary creation" just feels a little less necessary than usual.
But...the artists (music & video creators, especially) are arguably the most influential modern-day philosophers, & every day/week/month/year we spend honing our craft is a day/week/month/year invested in contribution to culture, no matter how small our circle of influence.
Hope you have a great Feb./FAWM, no matter how you spend it.
Hello my friend!!!
