Cool! I actually got in the contest one year (I think 2002) and was all prepared to go to the Cheryl Wheeler songwriting seminar thing, but 3 days before I flew out I fell two days in a row at work and developed an incredible head ache that lasted 3 weeks! The explanation for that is that I have lived with multiple sclerosis for 22 years, so falling is pretty common! I've known Grant for years from the Rocky Mountain Song School (where I have been on the teaching staff the last 4 years teaching alternate tunings with multiple capos and 1 and 2 finger chords, and Travis picking) and Suzanne was a dear friend I still think about often... I won't forget the last time I was sitting in a late night circle with her sharing a bottle of single malt scotch and songs... the best!
I should have re-entered the contest one of these years, but this and that gets in the way... :)
Thanks Carla for allowing our friendships here. I did post a song the other day which may be abit sensative for some and not others. My tears got into the lyrics and it is indeed from the heart. I love writing songs and many of them.. Again,, Thank you.. BOB
carla, thanks for the kind words on "Barn". It seems to be the song I play these days that casts a spell on the room. Got to play it out this weekend with ny best friend adding beautiful guitar work. Ah, synergy!
Oooh, I've got the windows wide open (first 80 degree day!) and the spring peepers are going at it :)
