#1716 - My friend Jed requesting to hear my songs which led to the impetus to make simple recordings of them
#1717 - Using "impetus" in that previous gratitude
#1718 - You know at one point in my life I didn't think I had any artistic ability. Similarly, for much of my life I thought I had a horrible singing voice. Now a days I'm singing all the time and I don't care who hears.
#1719 - I have been sitting next to a window much of the day where a cold draft is coming in. All day long it has reminded me, how lucky I am to be warm.
#1720 - My Dad's birthday is coming up. He asked today if I would be willing to defrost clean/out the deep freezer sometime. Yeah! I'll do it for his birthday, my kind of present.
