FAWM #8 for me!
So I'm still in Delaware...because...well... East Coast FAWMStock 2020! Duhhh! But... that being said...it may be my last East Coast FAWMStock since eventually I'll be working my way to the other side.
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!

Of course! It's kind of your song anyway. I'm not even a coffee drinker and had you in mind when I wrote the lyrics. 😀
Hi Cheryl, it's ok with me. But don't blame me if your local supply with coffee collapses... 😁
Thank you for this years FAWM. It has been an honor and I will stoick around too listen a bit but maybe not as frequent as before. I am always reachable trough mail and Facebook /Maddie
Hi Cheryl, thank you for your inspiring challenges and kind comments.
I've got a recording that's almost done for Soul Solitude. Do you want to preview first or I can put a link here. Gotta double-check and then send it over to mp3... warning: it's fun!
Thank you for your contributions to my challenge!
Thanks so much for your wonderful comment!
Thank you for commenting on my song "Erase Me", I appreciate it!
Thank for the kind words you left me 😀
thanks! I'm hoping to finish up somethings and listen but you know what I'm going through. That I've done this much is a miracle.
Hi, thank you for your hugs and support. And for enjoying my Mom's Piano song. Finishing it really took a weight off of my soul. I'm going to make a video for it after I do a proper mixing and mastering of the music.
You're so sweet, Cheryl. You certainly know how to make a person smile. 😀
Thank you so much for your comments. 😀 it means a lot!
Hey thank you much for the oracle challenge!! Can’t wait to write a song on blue butterfly .. so right as I’m really just about ready to break out of a comfy cocoon and been hearing that word transform all over .. maybe it’s time ❤️
Thanks and that is cool that you've been to that bridge! Did you also see Joanne's version of the song?
Thanks for your lovely comment on Death III it made my smile <3
Thank you so much for your generous words on “How Wide This River”! I really appreciate it.
Oh I love that message! Going to take awhile to process. Thanks!
Hey Cheryl, it's good to be back. Thanks for the encouraging comments on You Can't Say I Didn't Try.
He Cheryl; the longest session I've ever had was a little over 2 hours, but i think I want to see what happens if I can stay in for maybe 3-4 hours, when I can afford the luxury of trying... it seems the more I am stationary floating, the more detached from my body i allow myself to become, and at some point i would hope i could even forget about the existence of the body at all, at least for the soak time...
Thank you for your kind words on mine and Mikes collab and for continous support
LOL! I guess I can add Willy to my “sounds like” list. Thank you for your thoughtful comments Cheryl!
Thanks for your nice comments. Wow, I hadn't thought about the chain gang aspect of that. Ya' know, we seem to have "modified" chain gangs working on projects like landscaping around here. No chains, but a guy standing watch (prolly has a big ol' piece under his jacket), and a truck that says "Chester Co. Correctional Facility"- or some other pleasantry.
I wonder if I was talking about the cemetery near my old house? Cathedral cemetery, (I think) on Lancaster Pike? There are so many interesting ones in Wilmington. Especially the ones at Old Swedes, or the one right along 52 in the city.
Thank you for your kind comments on my song, "Wash Me Clean"!
Monkeys enjoying watching too!
Hey Cheryl! I'll be getting to the party late this year, if at all. Had a phone mishap. This mobile lifestyle takes a bit of adjustment that I haven't gotten a handle on yet.
Thanks. It gives me some hope too. I love when I have dreams like that 💜
Waving 'hi.' I hope I can write something for the oracle challenge bit. We'll see lol. I hold out hope. Regarding the mindfulness class, I am taking mine at my local Tibetan Buddhist learning center. It's mostly focused on meditation.
Thanks for commenting on "The Honey Festival"!
Thank you so much for your kind comment on my acapella song. Funny that I didn't realise it should be acapella until I couldn't think of chords that sounded nice with it. Can't imagine it any other way now 😀
Thank you so much for the encouragement on” man on the move” I’m hoping to make my first album this year and I’d like for that to be the title song. we shall see. Thanks again!
Thanks so much for the oracle card reading. It's very spot on actually, since I'm taking a mindfulness class right now. Yay! Thanks and hugs.
Thanks for the oracle challenge notes etc - I look forward in building a song from it soon when I ponder and reflect on the notes. It’s a little freaky though cos I’ve been wondering about a slight career change
Hi!, glad you're off to the races. Hope you're well. It's been a rough 2019 and into 2020 here, but on the plus side, I'll have more time to perform, record, and write. I'm off to a delayed start, thanks to an extended migraine siege, but that seems to have finally lifted, so I'll be hitting the muse hard to catch up. 😀
Hi Cheryl! Thanks for the comment. How are you so far ahead? 7 songs? You're amazing!
Thanks for leaving your review on the challenge song; glad to see that you enjoyed it!
Thanks for your comments. I can't seem to stop writing 😀
Thanks for your positive comments on "I Brought it on myself".
Thank you for your kind comments on my oracle challenge collab with Klaus (Trip of a Lifetime). And thank you for the inspiration with the card!!
Well..I meant I'd be up for trying emersion therapy. Lol. But who knows, maybe I'll cut a demo anyway.
I would like to thank you so much for your that kind words!
Yay! The booby tree! Maybe youbee the first?
Thank you so much Cheryl for your brilliant challenge and for your great support.
Thanks, hon! No - the music will come...just not right now. It's still a little hard to take in and we're all quite numb over here.
Thank you, Cheryl. 😁
Tha k you for your thoughtfull comments on my songs. Much apprechiated <3
Thanks for your awesome feedback on HEL <3
Hey, Cheryl, thanks for dropping by and I'm glad you liked Sunday Afternoon 5pm. One of the more amazing things that has happened in my life, that song. Yes, I remember you from FAWMstock. And you just gave me an idea for a song. See you around campus.
Hey hey! Happy FAWM!
Make so many what?? SONGS? Because I have to write when I'm inspired and have momentum.
Thanks for the Oracle it's a good one.
I'm up and have two unposted ( no thanks to jello shots!)
You is a very kind lady. Thank you. 😀 x
Thanks Cheryl...I look forward to hearing your work too...
Excited for this year!
Hi Cheryl, thanks for the encouragement. Enjoy the month. I have my songwriting buddy joining this year now that he is retired. He goes by ohleeoh. I am looking forward to see (hear) what this FAWM brings!
Always such a warm hello from you! Thank you my friend. Wishing you a happy FabFeb20. Bring your yumminess so all can feast.
Hiya Cheryl! Thanks! I hope all is well with you. Wishing you a great FAWM.
Glad you've recovered from our first meeting! 😀 Hopefully we'll meet again IRL this year...without the fall! Enjoy FAWM!!
Happy FAWM to you!! 😊
Did you see the skull and roses shirt on Aerosmith's (replacement) drummer at the Grammy's performance? Nice taste!
May your FAWM be fruitful and your royalties plush! 😎
Hey! I'm glad you'll be around for another East Coast FAWMStock. Have a great FAWM!
Thanks for your kind words! I'm happy to do my bit to help keep this site running. It's really such a great place, I love it here! 😀 Happy fawming!
Likewise - happy fawming!
Hi Cheryl, have fun this time around. See you in the summer!
I could have sworn I stopped by to say hi but I don't see myself in the (long) line of howdy do's. Here's to another great Fawm. Glad you're around.
It's not February yet! What the heck?Everybody's on here and I'm already behind!
Have a great FAWM Cheryl.
Happy FAWM to you. <3
Oh, and I miss you, too! Be sure to get in touch if you head this way. Number is the same.
Hey Cheryl! Great hearing from you! Yes. Loving the baby snuggles. Just seeing that little face gets the good endorphins released. Weather is well...the same as usual, but THIS year, I got myself some Eddie Bauer fleece-lined pants and it makes all the difference on cold days. I have a confession (don't hit me) I have officially become a tea drinker. Yogi Ginger, Chamomile and and Stash Black Licorice Tea becoming my favorites. I still WANT coffee, but have to settle for the frustratingly tempting smell that fills the room at work. (I OCCASIONALLY, like maybe once every three months, cheat and have a dunkin' decaf.--it's just a tease).
Happy FAWMing 😀
HELLO, HELLO FAWM is the caffeine waiting to run through our veins...hope we amaze ourselves with our awesome lyrics girl!!! Can't wait until our next hug!!!
I am totally ok with another sassy deck year. 😁 Either way is fine, but I got a really funny song out of last year's. I am into it.
And hi back to you! (I love your vast array of influences!)
Thanks for the encouragement...I'm doing this!ᕙ( ͡❛ ᴗ ͡❛)ᕗ
It was nice to meet you at FAWM stock, and I hope you have a happy fun and productive February! Peace 😀
Hello Cheryl! I hope things are going well for you. *deep breath* Ready for FAWM!
Hi Cheryl - have a great Leap FAWM!
Hey! Greatly appreciate you as a human <3. Let’s do this!
