I've followed you for many years, you provide a voice in the darkness of Alaskan winters. The spoken word is made more powerful when put to verse and you have a way with both.

I have two questions.

A) What is the joy in your day. If you could have a good day, what would be a few things in it.

I can't play any instruments anymore except that my grandchildren seem to enjoy the noise I make. I've been told many times my writings should be put to song. Could I send one or two to you for consideration. I would not want them said by anyone else.

With respect.

Howdy Alaska,

Honestly, hearing that someone has been soothed or inspired or comforted by my music is about as good as it gets. So, today is a good day. As for your writings, I suggest you find someone local you could collaborate with, as I cannot accept unsolicited submissions. Good luck! Slaid
