This will be my tenth year at FAWM. I've no idea how this FAWM will go. I've just moved to Mexico, but will be making frequent visits north of the border to spend time with my family who are still in Reno and the Seattle area. I'm trying to settle in to a very different culture, putting a house together. I came with two suitcases, which at least contained my computer and a microphone, and my little ukulele, which I still can't play well, but I love it!
My house is big and echoey, which will either be good or bad, and during the daytime there are the sounds of horses clip clopping on the cobblestones, dogs barking, roosters crowing, and cohetes exploding, as well as mariachi music and workmen remodeling... I expect I'll be doing a lot of late nights if I want any quiet at all 😉
The internet here is abysmal, which could make skirmishes more of a challenge than they already are, but hey,
I'm just here for the fun and inspiration!! Should you wish to join me in a collaboration just let me know. I only ask that I get a copy of the music file sent to my email, as well as any mixed with vocals. Hope that doesn't discourage anyone 😀
Oh, and by the way,
It's Sheila - Sheiler K
Christened by East Coast friends
Who can't pronounce A...
(at least, when it comes at the end my name!)
Somehow an R seems to slip in there uninvited 😉

Mexico now? My gosh, what an exciting move, Sheila. 😀
Are you still working with wolves? (I think of you every time I see news stories about wolves. 😉 )
Thanks for stopping by on 'We Are All The Same'!
Its good to know someone gets the message AND that the track produces the tapping of the toes lol
Thanks for the comment on my "The Moon" song. 😀
Thanks for your comment! 😀
Ok, done 😀 If you want those first two files as MP3, just let me know.
Hi Sheila, care for a collab with "Waiting"? 😀
Hi Sheila, I did actually start from that concept of a phantom limb for that song. I also was thinking of Joan Didion's memoir 'The Year of Magical Thinking' and how difficult it is to get the mind to catch up to reality sometimes. Thank you for commenting!
Hey....might have to join you there for a collab. Sounds wonderful.
Looking forwards to more songs about Ajijic!
Thank you, lovely lady. 😀
Sad about your PC though! 😞
I am so jealous! Can't wait to see those pictures. 😀
Hi Sheila, thank you for your warm welcome, looking forward to your beautiful lyrics and songs.
Hey, thanks for having a listen... all the best concerning that relocation; great food!
Hi Sheila! Happy FAWM!
Well, Hello again Sheila. It's all smiles for me... seeing you back for more. Let's really make this one, show them how it's done.
Hi Sheila! OMG...you moved to Mexico? When? Why? How? Dang that sounds really exciting and adventurous! I am envious!
Hi beautiful lady! 😊
