@tedfire - yes, that's what I hope I can share with my singing - comfort at a deep level - since that's what my singing gives to me. Thanks very much.

@pharmakeus - thanks Chris! It's always so interesting to do a cover because I only cover songs I really love so it takes a while before I know what I want to do with them. I don't want to do them like the original artist because those versions are already perfect as far as I'm concerned.

@pinkyrv - what a great thing to say! I love her.

@jacoust - much appreciate your comments, always.

@_A1K3M1_ - lol, you know me so well! yep, the hat and the bracelet (made decades apart) are both things I made and am very proud of - thanks. smiley you always get me smiley
I've really been enjoying the challenge of harmonizing with myself on purpose lately - in most of my original songs, I really don't think about it - it just comes out as I improvise. But, on these covers (first of Djev's I'm Drowning and now with this one by Joan Armatrading), I'm actually trying really hard to make the vocal syncronization and harmonies 'right'. As anyone who is a perfectionist knows, I am still not quite there BUT I am very happy with these two songs, nonetheless.

@dirigent - your comments always mean a lot to me and I love it that someone whose harmonies and singing I admire thinks well of mine.

@Trilobite2 @ soulima @brainfreeze Thanks so much you guys! I miss being here more often but it's nice to come back to such sweet comments. I SO hope Joan googles this and finds it - or that someone who knows her does. It would be like being able to thank her for so many years of aural pleasure.

Oh, your harmonies are simply awesome, darlin'! I totally get what you mean regarding the whole "perfectionist" thing, but a casual listen says you needn't worry. This was lovely.

@Beatle123 - Thanks my friend. It's so silly to get perfectionistic about art of any kind - it always amazes me when I still do it! smiley
