Subject: RE: Song writing questions
Gee, M. Ted, I am flattered to be on yer radar. Y'know, I hope you continue to pour out songs that get high marks, and acclaim. I admire your honest assessment; and I am just now searchig my head to see if I get that competitive burn. I think the honest answer is that back when the Challenges started I was infatuated with this whacky redhead and her irresistible enthusiasms, that I got competitive about winning her kudos, and she was always ready from her infinite supply, which is part of her great beauty. But ever since DH sent me to the cold showers I have been reformed; and my joy in songwriting is a more sober celebration of the creativity that comes out of these many "goldurned" talented characters in these parts, 'cuz it is so funny to see what they come up with!

'Course if we were contesting for remunerative publication I'd get all hotted up again and try and scheme superiority into my compositions, but after due introspection I think I'm off that hook for the moment... so it's okay with me if the best man gets the best applause even if it's you...godammmit... :>) Now, about that bridge...
