This is Alan (he is very good looking and gave me permission to use his name, but asked to not have his picture included).  He is a new friend who lives with his sister and brother-in-law here in Utah having recently moved from Long Beach, California.  I don’t know him very well yet, but I can tell he is a good man who respects women, works hard, and is seeking truth.  Alan is currently investigating the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  I ain”t gonna hide the fact that I hope he joins, but whatever he decides, I am glad to have a new friend!  Oh, and he sent me the following in an email.  Totes made this girl’s day!

Give me one reason….. that I shouldn’t blog about the first thing I recorded in a professional studio!

I was just 18 when I recorded this.  It was a pretty cool experience at a time in my life when I needed expression and creativity (kinda like now!).  There is a tension, though, as I wanted to sound stylish and slur my words just a little, but then that is at the sacrifice of enunciation.  The Sophie’s choice of singing, I guess.  Take a listen:

Oh, and here’s the email that my guitar teacher, Frank Keim sent me.  I feel comfortable sharing his contact info because he IS still in business.

I wouldn’t be the musician that I am today without him.  Truth!

Hierarchy of Digital Communication

There is a hierarchy of what is generally considered appropriate in the levels of communication.  I don’t mind giving my email out to most people.  Then if people know your full name they can find you on Facebook, and depending on how comfortable you are, you can choose to accept their friend request or not.  I along with many others won’t give my phone number out freely.  And address?  No way, Jose!  But yes, email I am quite comfortable with.

But here’s the funny thing:  IT’S EASIER TO REACH ME VIA EMAIL THAN PHONE!  Actually, scratch that, text and email are probably about equal.  Rest assured, I DO pick up the phone, listen to my messages, call people back (employers, I’m talking to you!)  And generally, I do a pretty good job of keeping in touch with people, getting back to them, etc.  I just find it interesting that “phone” kinda seems to be the VIP form of communication, but this girl ain’t that into it…
