thank you bev for posting those lines. you didn't have to, i'm just happy if my words did help at some occasion, and more recently, if my comments about your decision not to post anymore on that site drove you a bit to reconsider your position. this room is called "the singer musician", so anyone could expect posts written by dozens of singers, but personally i don't expect more than your posts, because as i told before, you unveil your feelings so beautifully, it's refreshing, it's not all about technic and training here (i'm expecting that in other rooms, and it's good also, but here i don't expect that), from you it's about feelings, trying to understand an artist's mood and what her (your) heart has to say, most of the time, people don't have time or don't feel like posting as you do, by doing so, you give a bit of yourself, and you "put yourself naked" as we say here in france, meaning you unveil things of yourself without playing a role, you just are yourself without really caring what people will judge about that, i like that, and it's always interesting to read you... i don't always understand word for word, but i get the main idea (i don't know what "wordy furnishings" means, but who cares :-)
i think many readers feel the same as me, not anyone does write it to you, but it doesn't mean your words don't touch anyone, you know that. anyway you aren't parano, you're sensible, that's something else.
thank you for the link, i could appreciate your lovely voice too, very pure, and i believe easily when you write your voice never fails you (also i didn't know you started by immitating bird calls in your garden in your childhood :-) i enjoyed very much "a taste of love", "the good news cabaret" has to be sung here in france in a parisian cabaret for real :)) i'll try to find more on amazon. let us know about your projects.
last thing, i'm not as you write a wonderful artist, i'm just a vely vely amateulish (jazz) pianist ;-) but that's right, i've a heart, it fails me sometimes, as for anyone ;-) hope to read you soon.
