Hey, Anne, Hope all goes well with you and yours. Thanks for all the great music and lyrics. There are very few artists around that I can revisit and be impressed with . Your work now joins Chris Whitley, Robert Plant, and Richard Thompson for originality , and inspiration in my music library. Will continue looking for your future work. thanks so much for so much
An ardent fan,
