My singing is usually more

Posted on Sat, 27 Jun 2015

My singing is usually more laid back, Kevin. But it felt good singing it. It's now part of my kitchen-table repotoire. We must hook up one time and write one together. Thanks for letting me do this.

Posted on Thu, 14 May 2015

Made me a bit sad. Not always a bad thing, really. Read it a half dozen times. 'Says goodbye to brief live and all that might have been' is the when that gets me. Much enjoyed, Tina.

Loved the opening line, Shawn

Posted on Fri, 10 Apr 2015

Loved the opening line, Shawn. It's true. I've also heard it gets stronger when it mends. Heard that in a Tom Waits tune. Not everyone sees the wounds behind the smile. I like that you do. Enjoyed this read., Shawan. Thanks.
