I enjoy writing song lyrics and poems. I also play guitar and piano, good enough. I'm a child of the 60s and grew up with rock and roll. Now I mostly write folk Americano and country. I love music that has great lyrics ,Bob Seger, Kris Kristofferson, Joni Mitchell, Simon and Garfield, etc. I am up for collabs if you see something that inspires you.

Hi, Donna

Glad you like Bad Reputation and I am very pleased The Ocean's Abyss resonated with you. I feel with the exact same way. I really enjoy learning about things out there and they really show how small our world is and yes the spiritual connection away from the carnal are exactly my thoughts.
Cheers!!

Just listened to Barton Hollow by The Civil Wars. Great sounding tune and I could definitely picture a number of your songs done by a group like this. Thanks for sharing that song. Enjoyed it.

Hi, Donna. I hope you're feeling better. Thanks for commenting on my "Clouds & Ralph" writes.

Hi Donna, thank you for your kind message. I'm truly sorry for everything you have to go through. I hope lyrics will help you heal. Music and lyrics are helping me more than I can express in words. Your loss hits home...

Thank you for your kind comment on Escape in Dancing.

And here I am, back again, to tell you how much we appreciate your taking yet another listen to But I Did (reimagined.) It's amazing to me what a difference some percussion and bass made to the track. I liked it the first time, and it just keeps sounding better. I admire people who know how to do all that. It is beyond me, but they have my undying admiration! :)

Donna, Thanks for your comments on the collab with Kate. She did such a wonderful job. I’m glad you enjoyed it, too.

Thanks for checking out "Cranky Old Men" (even though Patty just referenced her own lyric as "Grumpy Old Men") haha! It was actually a challenge to remember whether it was cranky or grumpy when singing it. Either one would have worked.

[avatar]

Thanks, Donna, for your comments on Grumpy Old Men—oops! I mean Cranky Old Men! (Who wrote those lyrics, anyway?). So glad you got a laugh out of it. I'm enjoying reading your lyrics here!

Hi, Donna

The name change to djevens threw me off and I didn't recognize you.
Yes, lots going on. If you ever want to chat sometime, let me know, I'll give you my email. I'm not opening my mouth too wide on this site for privacy reasons I am sure you're aware of.

You were like a guardian angel this past winter. Perhaps Jim had a hand in it <3 Looking forward to catching up with your lyrics and music!!

Hi Donna! I hope to catch up with you this summer! How are you? Happy 50/90
