FAWM 2021 is #9 for me! #lyrics-only

So I'm still in Delaware...because...well... East Coast FAWMStock 2020 didn't happen in Delaware like I stayed here longer for... and grrr, COVID! But, I've enjoyed my time in Delaware though! Plans are being set to move to San Antonio in May or June. Hoping to get back into internet radio submissions and meeting all you TX FAWMers!!

My plan for this year? I plan on doing several of @TCElliott's Almost Daily Writing Prompts:

Looking forward to reading all your updates and seeing what you all do during FAWM! If you want to join the Oracle Challenge this year, go to:

  • @wolfkier 1 day

    πŸ˜€ always and again.
    Safe travels to your new life, my friend. Hugs.

  • @tamsnumber4  1 day

    Thanks for listening and commenting on my song "Something Dark", I really appreciate it!

  • @kathym  2 days

    Thank you for your thoughtful comments on "Waltzing With Sorrow". I really did meet my ex that way, with him sitting one table closer to mine each day until he was sitting next to me. I will be revisiting my songs and appreciate each and every comment as I develop them, so your input is truly appreciated.

  • @kathym  2 days

    Thank you so much for taking the time to check out my skirmish song "I Can't Wait". I save my archive and review and consider all comments as I'm going back over my fawm songs. Many thanks to you, Cheryl!

  • @kathym  2 days

    I'm catching up on long overdue thank you notes for having stopped to consider my skirmish song Movin' Away. I really appreciate everyone's thoughts and support and as I rework some of my songs, will keep your comments in mind.

    2 big big smiles for you today, my friend. Thank you so much for your always always always kind, encouraging (and sometimes spicy) responses to my work.
    One of the real joys of both 50/90 and FAWM is knowing that long distance and long time friends like yourself will meet again if only virtually. I value our ongoing friendship very much, dear friend.
    May you find every joy your heart desires in your coming move. Safety, happiness, prosperity, and good health! See you, I hope, in the Summer!
    PS: For the record, Charlotte is the name of my #1 guitar. She's been around the world with me twice and we've been separated several times over a quarter century: warehoused, hocked, loaned out (for rent!), she was even stolen twice, but she's always come back to me. πŸ˜€ "Charlotte's Reward" is the name of a soundcloud account I set up about a decade ago to show off her excellence! I still have it so I still use it. Sorry if that somehow changes your viewpoint on any of my songs...
    (After I know you've read this Ima come back delete it, so print it out for your personal WK file! LOL )

  • @kathym  5 days

    Thank you for your thoughtful comments on "We All Can Make a Difference". I'm almost definitely going to develop that song and will keep your comments in mind. I'll be catching up on more listening in the coming weeks, so I'll be popping in on your songs again, too, and looking forward to it. Thank you SO much!

    Thanks for your comment on "All Hallow's Eve"! I hope you got out of that stupor πŸ˜‰ Thank you so much for starting that Oracle Challenge. It was lot of fun!

  • @markg  1 week

    Singh is the most common name for Sikhs, estimated worldwide population 25-30 million. (Compare to 14 million Jews, who have many more last names.) I wonder what the box scores in Punjab look like with so many named Singh.
    Possible that not many lived in Maine.

  • @dasbinky  2 weeks

    I always view "you haven't tried the right coffee" the same way my queer friends view "well, you just haven't tried the right [insert genitalia]". πŸ˜‰

    Glad you dug the tune, hope your FAWM is going well! 😁

  • @bitshred  2 weeks

  • @rwhosings  3 weeks

    Thank you so much for the comment on The Magic I've Made. I might be back for another card before this ends.....

  • @dudachris 3 weeks

    Hey, your Oracle Challenge is a HIT.

    I've just posted the #Griffined challenge. Its basically a challenge to write songs that could aide 5-14 year olds in learning and to submit them to this very cool nonprofit which uses music as a teaching device.

    I mention this directly to you because both of my two oracle songs would fit in the literary category for youngsters and I anticipate that there are other songs that might as well from the #oraclechallenge. So if you know of any I would be so thrilled if you directed the responsible FAWMer over to my challenge in support of a great cause.

    Thanks again and all the best!!

  • @julieann 3 weeks

    Hey, Cheryl...thanks for the encouraging words...will likely tweak and improve it. Was gonna finally do some recording in Dec but we all got spooked and postponed..sigh. Sad to hear you're moving...

  • @prsongsmith  3 weeks

    Thanks for taking the time to listen to β€œDrum Me A Dance” and for your kind words! Oh, and of course for providing the Oracle prompt! That Banshee card was not at all what I was expecting, but it certainly did the trick and scared up a song!

  • @didib 4 weeks

    Thank you for my Oracle card - you must be psychic as you picked 'Owl' and I'm mad for owls! It is about sight which is also personal to me, I'm having eyeball injections once a month to stop me going blind. I'm taking that a bit literally as it's not that kind of vision they mean, but still, lots of food for thought! Thanks so much, I really hope I can write something for this challenge.

  • @engebretsen  4 weeks

    Thx for the card! Seduction it`s gonna be. I tell when it`s done.

    It's great to connect again. Thanks so much for your comments on my songs. I've actually probably likely almost definitely quit FB for good. So that's why I don't see your coffee posts. (Insert laugh emoji.)

    30 years of ancestry research - wow! I did some back in the 70s with my dad. Living near DC we were able to visit the National Archives and look stuff up on microfiche. We only went back a handful of generations, if that. I just recently got interested in it again.

  • @andrewjtaylor  5 weeks

    Hey Cheryl! Just 1 week till FAWM!

    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 our contribution to culture.

    Hope you have a great Feb./FAWM, no matter how you spend it.
