    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. πŸ˜€

  • @sph  Mar 11

    Hi Cheryl, it's ok with me. But don't blame me if your local supply with coffee collapses... 😁

  • @acousticmaddie  Mar 5

    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

  • @musicsongwriter  Mar 1

    Hi Cheryl, thank you for your inspiring challenges and kind comments.

  • @johncrossman  Mar 1

    Here's a link, let me know if there are any issues:

  • @johncrossman  Mar 1

    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!

  • @blackrose1313 Feb 29

    Thank you for your contributions to my challenge!

  • @arthurrossi Feb 27

    Thanks so much for your wonderful comment!

  • @marvsmooth  Feb 26

    Hey there Cheryl πŸ˜€

    I have updated the demo for one of my collaborations with @cindyrella - The Ghosts Of Sachs Bridge

  • @tamsnumber4  Feb 25

    Thank you for commenting on my song "Erase Me", I appreciate it!

  • @lisamarie777 Feb 25

    Thank for the kind words you left me πŸ˜€

  • @wolfkier Feb 24


  • @sph  Feb 24

    Ok, surely by now I believe @bithprod that you like coffee πŸ˜€
    Your comment makes me very happy!

  • @the3queens  Feb 24

    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.

  • @spunky4455 Feb 24

    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.

  • @kc5 Feb 24

    You're so sweet, Cheryl. You certainly know how to make a person smile. πŸ˜€

  • @johnstaples  Feb 22

  • @johnstaples  Feb 22

  • @aesthetic72  Feb 22

    Thank you so much for your comments. πŸ˜€ it means a lot!

  • @bronnyd  Feb 21

    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 ❀️

  • @johnstaples  Feb 20

  • @cindyrella  Feb 20

    Thanks and that is cool that you've been to that bridge! Did you also see Joanne's version of the song?

  • @phoenixash Feb 20

    Thanks for your lovely comment on Death III it made my smile <3

  • @kahlo2013  Feb 20

    Thanks, Cheryl!

  • @scubed  Feb 19

    Thank you so much for your generous words on β€œHow Wide This River”! I really appreciate it.

  • @johnstaples  Feb 19

  • @johnstaples  Feb 19

    Did someone say "Monkey Watch"?

  • @cindyrella  Feb 18

    Oh I love that message! Going to take awhile to process. Thanks!

  • @dannyk1  Feb 18

    Hey Cheryl, it's good to be back. Thanks for the encouraging comments on You Can't Say I Didn't Try.

  • @roy  Feb 17

    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...

  • @acousticmaddie  Feb 17

    Thank you for your kind words on mine and Mikes collab and for continous support

  • @jamkar  Feb 17

    LOL! I guess I can add Willy to my β€œsounds like” list. Thank you for your thoughtful comments Cheryl!

  • @jessicagraae  Feb 17

    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.

  • @tamsnumber4  Feb 17

    Thank you for your kind comments on my song, "Wash Me Clean"!

  • @johnstaples  Feb 16

    Monkeys enjoying watching too!

  • @dannyk1  Feb 15

    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.

  • @cindyrella  Feb 13

    Thanks. It gives me some hope too. I love when I have dreams like that πŸ’œ

  • @wolfkier Feb 11


  • @lisamarie777 Feb 10

    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.

  • @blackrose1313 Feb 10

    Thanks for commenting on "The Honey Festival"!

  • @mariekevinkmusic  Feb 10

    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 πŸ˜€

  • @s7even  Feb 10

    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!

  • @lisamarie777 Feb 8

    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.

  • @chariotbaldwin  Feb 6

    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

  • @stuartbenbow Feb 6

    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. πŸ˜€

  • @valeriecox  Feb 6

    Hi Cheryl! Thanks for the comment. How are you so far ahead? 7 songs? You're amazing!

  • @blackrose1313 Feb 6

    Thanks for leaving your review on the challenge song; glad to see that you enjoyed it!

  • @cindyrella  Feb 6

    Thanks for your comments. I can't seem to stop writing πŸ˜€

  • @berni1954  Feb 6

    Thanks for your positive comments on "I Brought it on myself".

  • @kristi  Feb 6

    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!!

  • @gslade Feb 5

    Well..I meant I'd be up for trying emersion therapy. Lol. But who knows, maybe I'll cut a demo anyway.

  • @arthurrossi Feb 4

    I would like to thank you so much for your that kind words!

  • @jessicagraae  Feb 3

    Yay! The booby tree! Maybe youbee the first?

  • @musicsongwriter  Feb 2

    Thank you so much Cheryl for your brilliant challenge and for your great support.

  • @cts  Feb 2

    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.

    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.

  • @erinkelsey3 Feb 1

  • @goldarrow  Jan 31

    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!

  • @wolfkier Jan 31

    Always such a warm hello from you! Thank you my friend. Wishing you a happy FabFeb20. Bring your yumminess so all can feast.

  • @markg  Jan 29

    Did you see the skull and roses shirt on Aerosmith's (replacement) drummer at the Grammy's performance? Nice taste!

  • @dasbinky  Jan 28

    May your FAWM be fruitful and your royalties plush! 😎

  • @pfoo  Jan 28

  • @tcelliott  Jan 27

    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.

  • @the3queens  Jan 23

    It's not February yet! What the heck?Everybody's on here and I'm already behind!

  • @bitshred Jan 20

    Have a great FAWM Cheryl.

  • @acousticmaddie  Jan 20

    Happy FAWM to you. <3

  • @kc5 Jan 20

    Oh, and I miss you, too! Be sure to get in touch if you head this way. Number is the same.

  • @kc5 Jan 20

    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).

  • @natrin Jan 20

    Happy FAWMing πŸ˜€

  • @tamsnumber4  Jan 19

    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!!!

  • @tawny249  Jan 18

    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.

  • @chipwithrow  Jan 18

    And hi back to you! (I love your vast array of influences!)
