    49. Bebe,
    Songwriting!! Yay!

    Did anyone else read that tweet and see a light bulb just go on for him? :!: Maybe he just found the key that will unlock the door to some really great songwriting. :D

    You go, David! Pour your heart out and make us cry.

    Absolutely/Positively thrilled for David ….and us!

  4. bebereader said

    If he feels so passionate about the song he just wrote it will transfer over to us, ten fold! I hope he’s able to write more music with that particular Nashville songwriter because perhaps he or she was able to bring out something in his writing that the others could not, thus far.

    A lightbulb, MT, yes!

  5. jans11 said

    Omgosh, new music from that sweet heart of his! ♥ I always thought that he wrote from his heart, but I think that heart is older and more experienced now, so we’d better watch out. I’m just so anxious to hear it…it’s been so long since a live concert.

    Yes, I seen that light bulb too! :) That’s what I mean about being older and more experienced!

  6. tawna21 said

    Never, ever having written a song, I can’t relate to writing one from the heart (or even just the brain), but I can relate to what hearing a song written from David’s heart will do to mine. #sigh ♥♪♥

  7. Grammyj said

    Better yet here’s a tweet with a bit of audio of David singing a bit of a song.

  8. tawna21 said

    (hope it works)

  9. bebereader said

    Thank you GrammyJ and Tawna!

    If that’s a taste of what’s to come, I like it!!

  10. jans11 said

    7 & 8…both of them worked and neither one of them were long enough! haha! But loved what I did hear! ♥ Oh yeah!

  11. Suzy-Q said

    I always thought that David wrote music from his heart so what I think has happened, is that he has gone much deeper and will finally expose a part of his heart that he has just discovered. .

  12. skydancer1x said

    Oh Wow! thank you so much GrammyJ and Tawna!
    Lay down those tracks, D
    (Dang his voice is so strong.)

    “How happy does this make you? Happier than a VIP fan on the front row of a room without a roof? Yeah. I thought so. I’m right there with ya”

    Yes. So happy!

    ♥That may be most awesome tweet ever, from David♥

  13. skydancer1x said

    11. Suzy-Q ,yes, agree with what you say. Kind of gives you chills to even think about it doesn’t it?
    Yikes,we are so in trouble lol

  14. “Downtown Music Publishing has signed ASCAP songwriter Andy Albert to an exclusive publishing deal. Albert is a member of the ASCAP Guidance from Publishers for Songwriters (GPS) Project class of 2014. The Atlanta native was previously part of the duo Bonaventure, with Dan Smyers of Dan +Shay.”…

    This is more about Andy Albert who David was doing the tracking with.

    Feels sooo good to read that Tweet. :)
    (it must just seem ‘normal’ to him, but he does everything from the heart, including anything else he’s ever written…but I’m thinking this new stuff really touches him deeply right now. Way cool. Can’t wait!)

  17. bluesky4home said

    Dear Peeps:

    I wrote this the other day… before we got such fun news. ^_^

    I had wondered if I should post it, because I know that I often can sound “serious” and I guess I worry that I may come across as sad somehow. Um. No. I was not sad when I wrote the comment I am posting below. I just wanted to acknowledge the change and effect DA’s new M.O. was having on me in the hopes that my expression of those feelings might ease someone else. I love the support we offer and share as we travel together to this (always) new place.

    So, I decided to go ahead and post it now, even though it may seem a bit “past-times”. One of the reasons for this, is because of his new post, oddly enough. You see, I really believe that the more “real” his music is to him, the more intimate and connected to his soul, then all the more effort he will make to bring it to us. Will he be more vulnerable? Quite possibly. But also more driven to sing. Because only then can he find out what he has written.

    I say this as a person who writes manuals, who teaches. I never really know what the material means that I am so passionate about (although I think I do! ^_^), until I teach and share it with others. This brings me to a place of deep humility and wonder as I see others come to “own” tools and concepts that express their marvelous inner being. With every class I learn anew that although I may be the writer and purveyor, I can never truly “own” the truth that is purveyed. It is within all of us. And we shine.

    So, with that as a (sorry for the l.o.n.g.) prelude (I shake my head at myself…. and smile) here is the post I wrote earlier that I waited to share.

    ~~~~~~~

    What do you teach me by your “silence”? That, is something each heart must decide for itself. Perhaps this is harder in its way, than watching you struggle on AI: then, we at least had the experience of feeling a part of your struggle. Now, I must watch you struggle (or grow, or worry, or plan, or make key decisions, etc) without having the feeling of being somehow close, and a co-partaker, celebrator.

    But that is no different than it is with my own children, who grow up, and who share, but from a different place, a different perspective. This is a “closeness” that seems fraught with danger, yet the message from you repeats: safety. It may seem to consist mainly of distance, when in fact, as you become closer to yourself, you will ultimately deliver an ever more richness of intimacy with each offering you bring.

    I always notice your footwear. (^_^ Angelica spoke long ago of “tying shoes”). Well, it did not escape me that you wore sandals to the ice-bucket party. I do not know the reason for the constant footwear. None-of-my-business. But it reminds me of some of my own idiosyncrasies. One of them being a tendency to sensory overload.

    If I were a person who needed solitude and relative quiet to fully “come to myself”, (which I am), than I would relish the relative “quiet” of going my own pace, of having a private time that I did not have to constantly share and explain. This is not necessarily the most convenient attribute for a person in the entertainment business. But, we are who we are.

    And you have always known that the light inside of you never comes fully to fruition, to its immediate and lasting bond of connection, to its one true realization of meaning….. until it comes into contact with our own.

    So, sooner or later DA, not only will we hear your songs for the first time….. so will you.

  18. sweetonda said

    Bluesky, that is a beautiful piece of writing! I love your thought process and i can see why you shared this with us now. ” So, sooner or later DA, not only will we hear your songs for the first time….. so will you.” Fits perfectly!

  19. MT said

    Bluesky,
    Much of what you said hit home with me. While I can sometimes be impatient, I can understand a need for solitude because there are times I need that myself. And yes, I do believe that with personal inspiration that comes from deep within, and self-discovery in his writing, he will come to a point where he needs to share it with someone. ( LOL Could that someone be us? ;) )

    Oh, and I especially loved this last line: “So, sooner or later DA, not only will we hear your songs for the first time….. so will you.”

    Bluesky, your article is very interesting. So many of the things you covered has went through my mind at one time or another and you put all those things in the right words to explain.
    I know that every time I hear David sing, it’s like the first time. It’s not that I forget that he is good and I love the sound of his voice, but when I hear it again the magnificence is there again and I just totally enjoy every note of every song.

    Abrra, a few weeks ago in chat you asked me if I could send photos of the Elders. They were here again today and I asked them if it was ok to post their photo and they said sure. So, I emailed them to you and I hope I did it right and you will receive both of them. Let me know, ok?

    The feels…those were the first words out of my mouth when I read the tweet that marks a moment, a special moment for David. Then we get that snippet “open my eyes” and I hear that wondrous voice and dang that patience goes out the window for a moment and I want it now!!! haha

    We are so ready but then I calm myself down because I want David to take all the time he needs to put out music that he feels and when he is ready so it can be right for us, like he said. I will wait.

    Bluesky, that was so beautiful in so many ways. Thank you for sharing your heart here with us.

    Marydee, That is awesome! David is a natural!

    Amb4da, One minute I’m spazzing the next I’m reminding myself to have patience.

    SB, Oh they seem like a talented bunch there. I think writers wouldn’t hesitate to write with David :)

    Sweetonda, every time I see your name it makes me think of one of my favorite movies, Fried Green Tomatoes. You rock.

    MT, yes, it will be with us – and everyone else! Thank you for your kind words. Love you.

    Jans, you are one of my heros. Thank you for all you bring into my life by your quiet, kindly deeds.

    Djafan, ha,ha! His tweet will do nothing to slack our hungar, will it? DA shares his own heart, this is what we are hoping for – not the lights, not the show, but the “feels” as you call them. ^_^ Happy Sunday!

  26. jans11 said

    Nice puzzle. Thanks Abs and Angelica!

    Thank you Bluesky from the bottom of my heart! I think the elders came into my life this summer for a reason, just like David came into my life over 6 yrs ago for a reason. The elders were here to give me some moral support over some issues I was having and David showed up just when my hubby passed and his music filled a void then and still does. There are days and dates that come up and his music is always there to comfort me. As well as words from you guys on here…kind of like a family and a home away from home. I love all you guys and what you have done for me. If I sound a little melancholy, it’s because yesterday was the day I lost my daughter 32 yrs ago and it’s always hard. The elders were very helpful in letting me “borrow their couch”! It’s always better to talk about things to get them off your mind, but yet you don’t want to burden people with your troubles. They are just here to comfort when needed and that’s the way it’s been here. Thanks to you all! ♥

    Bluesky, I love that movie too! Glad my moniker brings a smile to you! When I was thinking of what to use on the Idol fansite I thought ok, something to do with David and sweet on DA came to my mind, so sweetonda was born. When I saw it all together like that I had to laugh because it reminded me of that movie also. I’ve thought about changing it but now it’s a part of my identity. So be it!

    Jans11, I’m so glad you have such a good friendship with the Elders. Thank you for being so kind to them. They no doubt will remember you always!

    Sandybeaches, sending ((((hugs)))) your way. Glad to hear your son is on the mend. You and he continue to be in my prayers.

    Dja, The feels…YES, Yes, yes! That happens every time I see a tweet or instagram from him. And this, “We are so ready but then I calm myself down because I want David to take all the time he needs to put out music that he feels and when he is ready so it can be right for us, like he said. I will wait.” Exactly the way I feel. BTW, I hope your dad is doing much better.

    I remember all the fun times I had attending BYU after my mission. I do hope David is able to have that experience because IMO it will just add to his maturity and give him more personal experiences, along with gaining educational insight. I’m good with it either way. He knows what is best for his growth as a person.

    Just feeling a bit nostalgic today and remembering all the wonderful fan friends I’ve met on this “David Archuleta” journey. My concert fund is till growing and I’ll be ready when it happens, cuz I know it will at some point! Can’t wait to see everyone again and meet you all that I haven’t met in person yet. You all make my days brighter with your posts and comments.

    Abrra, thanks for all the Sunday puzzles! I love them!

    Angelica, is that little waving icon you waving to David, or David waving to his fans! Either way, it’s so cute!

    Have a great holiday weekend everyone!

  28. bluesky4home said

    Jans: a BIIIIIGGGGG hug to you.

  29. jans11 said

    Thanks, Sweetonda and Bluesky. Got your hug! ♥ Another good thing out of the Elder friendship is that I became friends with Elder Stallings’ mom. She is on my FB now and she is so sweet. David has brought so much in my life, in more ways than one. Every time I send him a card, it is always thanking him and this time I found a card that has a whole page of adjectives describing what he’s done and how his music makes me feel. He’s probably sick and tired of them by now! haha I always tell myself that I’m not sending any more, but then something comes up that I think that he would think interesting, so out goes another card! :)

    I went to one of my grand daughter’s 1st anniversary party and they let one of the radio stations know and they “crashed” the party(that’s what they do) and gave some different gifts and recorded an interview that was later run on the radio. It was really fun and different.

    Abrra & Angelica…. awesome puzzle today… thanks!

    Jans, thank you for sharing your pictures. I’m so glad you were able to connect with such good young men. Isn’t it great to know that there are good people in the world that are willing to help when needed? ♥♥

  31. bebereader said

    Jans,

    Is it too late for another {{{{hug}}}}?
    The Elders you met sound like such nice young men!

    The ‘feels’ in David’s tweet are still giving me butterflies because I know that when he feels, he transfers it to us.

    Bluesky,

    I don’t say this enough…You have no idea how much inspiration you give me. David has to do it his way, not our way. And it’s going to be worth the wait.

    I think he’s finished in Nashville. This tweet was from yesterday:

    Bebe, it’s never too late for a hug! ♥

    Tawna, yes it is very good to know there are such good people out there…and it seems as though all David fans are super people. I have only met the best! Remember the “3 musketeers” at David’s last concert…you, me, and Dayzee…all 3 of us, 5′ or under! :)

    Terry, can’t wait for David’s new album either! :)

  33. Patricia Ann said

    LOVE THIS!!!! “And you have always known that the light inside of you never comes fully to fruition, to its immediate and lasting bond of connection, to its one true realization of meaning….. until it comes into contact with our own. So, sooner or later DA, not only will we hear your songs for the first time….. so will you.”

    Thanks for saying that. We are all on a very special journey with David as he grows into the Man he will continue to become. At some point, I let go of my sadness at his not making constant vlogs for us like the did for 3 years!! Now, I respect that he has HAD TO carve out time and space for himself just to find himself, catch his breath and really delve into all the creative aspects of his music. The way he stands next to his fans when they ask for photos actually – often – seems like he gets a bit CLOSER to them than before. Perhaps that was a gift of his mission – feeling more comfortable – physically – around others. I can only speculate. What I know is that he will thank us for hanging in there with him – there will be something on the liner notes of the album when it comes – and yes, we we all be in Big Trouble. Do not drive and listen to a new CD from David for the first time. Tears, love, changes, Providence – we’re all in this. And it is all very, very good. Blessings, Patricia

    Yeah Jans, we may be short but we are powerful and something to be reckoned with! :D

  35. jans11 said

    Yes, Tawna we are, aren’t we!!! :)

    I need to explain what I said above about only meeting the best. I know the ones I have yet to meet will be the best also! Just mean that all of David’s fans are the best! :) Don’t want to leave anyone out! haha :) Whatever!! But, I think you know what I mean………

  36. bluesky4home said

    Twitter is buzzing with the David tweet and sighting.

    So proud and happy for him. I’m also so excited for the music he’s been working on and his desire for it to be right for us before we can hear it. #patience

  46. djafan said

    Jans (((hugs)))

    I have to say this out loud. I just can’t believe some fans, sheeesh.

  47. jans11 said

    WOW! Archie radio! :) My friend said “nothing but David music?” and I said “sure Elvis has his own station on XM radio, so why not David. I mostly listen to David anyway and with the radio I won’t have to change cd’s”! :)

    Thanks DJA…♥

  48. djafan said

    Let me clarify, some fans on twitter directly tweeting David rude/nasty comments just blow me away.

    This was posted on FOD by “Someone”

    Watching so closely, a person can take something personally that was absolutely not meant that way. David holds no resentment toward fans and did not mean to give offense with the tweet. It was simply his way of indirectly confirming what some fans already know without alerting all 1.38M followers of where to find him on a given day lol.

    Please be assured that music is still happening. Things are in the works.

    And because I know someone will ask this, NO I cannot give you “proof” of why to believe me. This is just something I wanted to come here and say. Feel free to scroll right on by

  49. jans11 said

    How can anyone say bad things to David? He would never hurt anyone. It might make him withdraw even more and that wouldn’t be good at all. I think that’s why he’s not telling everyone every move he makes. He said one time “there is always someone that hates your guts, no matter what you do!” Those fans don’t own the guy, leave him alone!

    Glad that “Someone” stepped in and said what they did. I have proof…David said he was doing music and that’s all I need! :)

  50. bluesky4home said

    Djafan: ????

    So interesting!! When I read his tweet all I thought was: “Thank Goodness!! A-MEN! At LLaaaaasssST.!!!! Whew! The MIGHTY is on his way! “Rollin’, Rollin’, Rollin’… keep those wagons rollin'”, Chattanooga Choo Choo!, School-days, School-days – good-ole ‘Golden Rule’ days”

    (just to name a few – ^_^)

    The memo I got told me that: there is no DA Beeb-Robot in existence. No one alive by the DA brand name who lives only for the reflection of the fan’s (no matter how nice) opinions of him. (would I want someone so vulnerable? so dependent on “optics”?) Also: There has been no other-worldly re-incarnation (Dr Who style) of one of our favorite people. DA is just now able to be the “Who” Whom he is. He gently teaches me every day that the truest guide lies within.

    And I can just restate all I said above (a few posts above): There is no greater gift he can give than his true self. There is no other gift I would want or would value as much. His joy is my joy.

    If you can stand one more silly book or song title:
    “Go, Dog, Go!!”

    (and if you need to DA, “Go around again!”)

    ^_^

    Sometimes when there is a perceived ‘vacuum’ I might have the tendency to fill it with my own fears. That is natural for me. I have done it. Lots. I am neither the ‘perfect fan’ (if there is such a thing!) nor the worst. I am just human. I just love what DA does with music and a heart-message. I love what I see, feel, and hear when he shares from his soul.

    Some of that is – of necessity – mine. (or every fan’s that has a like experience)

    Also, to quote an old saying: “No one said it would be easy, only that it would be worth it.” Speaking for myself – with all my faults – if it brings him joy, it is worth it. Whatever else it may bring to me, personally.

    Peace, love, joy, to ALL his fans. I really believe you are the best fans ever.

    (Dear bluesky: So, is it just now occurring to you that you truly have to “let him go” in order that your arms may be wide enough to welcome what comes next?)

    Yes, I do talk to myself.

  52. fenfan said

    Ok, as usual I am the shallow one. That pic at #44 – he’s looking good; the best dressed student walking the corridor. I like that shirt – such a snug fit. He gets an A+ for a well-coordinated ensemble. Way to go, David. Hope you ace all your classes!

  53. bebereader said

    Bluesky#51

    Trust me, you are not talking to yourself. There are many who read this site even if they don’t comment. And the ones who do comment are listening, too.

    For the record, I am very happy that David is getting a higher education. He has a thirst for knowledge and college is just the place to explore many different avenues. The timing is right. I am hopeful for the future and his music. He may not put it out as fast as before because with a heavy course load, he may not have as much time. Or he may surprise us! In any case, I will deal with it.

    When I signed on as a fan almost seven years ago, I wasn’t clueless. I knew he was very young with a future ahead of him. and although I didn’t want to think too far ahead, I realized that college was on the horizon. He’s not just a singer but a human being, after all, with hopes, ambitions and feelings like the rest of us and with the potential to go very far. I wish him all the best life has to offer; he certainly deserves it!

    Blue, I keep this in mind too. “No one said it would be easy, only that it would be worth it.” Amen!

    Fen, Nice outfit, yes!

  54. bluesky4home said

    Ha, ha – Bebereader! Your thoughts are spot on. What I meant was not that others might not listen or read…. I know that the fan base is amazing at keeping up to date, probably much better at that than I am (since 99% of the time I only read and post on this site) – but that yes, I do in actuality talk to myself from time to time. *_* It comes I think, from spending so much time writing and wondering.

    First sign of insanity? Naw… that happened when I raised kids. ^_^

    Fenfan.. no shallowness about it. One of my first thoughts was: great! He HAD to buy new clothes for school!!! Yippee!!
    I would have loved to read about that on Snowangelz.

    bluesky,
    You had me ROTFL at your comment about talking to yourself. I do it, too! I even occasionally talk to you guys when I read your comments. (Shhhh … don’t tell anyone ;) )

    Fen,
    Not shallow at all. :) But I actually don’t like the khaki pants since I once worked at a school where the whole student body wore them. Got sooo tired of that color! LOL But since he’s going to school, I guess they’re perfect!

    Bebe,
    I’m happy for him too and hope he gets everything he wants from college. But, I am a teeny bit selfish as a fan and also hope he manages to work some music into the mix. From the comment Dja posted, looks like that might be the plan. *fingers crossed – again* :)

    Sooo David is at Provo! Eating! Cannon Center is the dining hall :)

    Hannah✺ ‏@hherbineee 5h
    David Archuleta was at the Cannon Center this morning?¿ 😭 why didn’t I eat breakfast

    Bluesky, I talk to my self alllll the time, it works lol And your comments rock!

    Fenfan, not shallow at all. D looking very collegy :)

    Bebe, beautifully said!

    “He’s not just a singer but a human being, after all, with hopes, ambitions and feelings like the rest of us and with the potential to go very far. I wish him all the best life has to offer; he certainly deserves it!”

    MT, So many non-genius folk do it so David being a genius and all will do it :)

    So now to wait “patiently” for the next news!

    Bebe, this is perfect…. “He’s not just a singer but a human being, after all, with hopes, ambitions and feelings like the rest of us and with the potential to go very far. I wish him all the best life has to offer; he certainly deserves it!”

    We know David has a thirst for learning. He’s showed it to us for the last almost 7 years. He doesn’t just travel when he travels, he absorbs whatever is around him and learns more about wherever he is. He is not, and never will be, a star who makes his name by throwing eggs, or dancing in suggestive ways, or getting arrested for being stupid and throwing a fit about it. He is already a star. One who will shine brightly for a very long time because of the quality of music that he presents and the example of life that he lives. He is letting us know, in my opinion, with his latest tweet that he knows he is finally in control of where his life goes, and he wants us to know that. We should all be as happy for him as he is for himself. No more powers that be to control his destiny. Good luck, David! You have our hearts and we have your back. Works for me!! :)

    First let me say this – I am not a stalker! LOL

    But…

    I googled Cannon Center. Now I know what they serve at the Commons at Cannon Center. Also all about BYU student meal plans. If I were a student I would go for the all-you-can-eat Open Door 7. Only thing is it costs $1915 for one semester. Is that considered expensive or cheap?

    Don’t throw tomatoes – I love to eat, so I had to find out.

  60. Abrra said

    Fen
    Break it down to cost per day and get back to me. That’s how I would decide if its worth it.

    On the practical side, if I was a student, having meals/snacks available in close proximity to classes and activities would be a huge factor in choosing the all you can eat plan.

    I am glad that David has chosen to follow his heart and mind about college. The fan base angst just keeps on going. I don’t think some are ever satisfied no matter what he decides.

    Abrra

  61. djafan said

    Fenfan, I’m not a stalker either but I did check out the menu and was trying to guess what David might have chosen haha

    Abrra, true true

    Tawna, It works great!

  62. fenfan said

    I am not familiar with the American school system so I don’t know how many days there are in one semester. That makes it a bit difficult for me to calculate the cost per day for the 7-day plan. But I was thinking the Open Door 5 might work better for him – eating there only 5 days a week would leave him the weekend to continue with his MKOP search without wasting 2 days’ worth of prepaid meals. Or he could date only women with an Open Door 7 plan. Then they can continue eating at Cannon Center without any wastage.

    Imagine this.

    David: Hey girl, you tick all the boxes on my MKOP list. Want to have dinner Saturday?
    Girl: Sure. Where would you like to go?
    David: Do you have an Open Door 7 plan?
    Girl: Umm,…yes?
    David: Great. I’ll see you at the Commons at 6.30.
    Girl: Isn’t that a bit early?
    David: Gosh, no. Eating at half six would leave me time to finish all my school work. Then I can write some songs, do some recording and finish the album I am working on so that my pesky fans can stop speculating whether I am going to continue singing.
    Girl: OMheck!! So you are really making an album!!!! Ok, quick let’s take a selfie so I can tweet it before our date.

    He is going to be a very busy man. LOL

  63. MT said

    Fen
    LOL Yep, studying, eating, dating, writing, singing, he’s gonna be one very busy man!

    Multi-tasking! :)

    I just love your sense of humor.

  66. bluesky4home said

    Fenfan – how I have missed the fresh and refreshing humor that surrounded DA while he filmed the tv series. Thank you!! I love it: a girl who would love to spend her “date” just watching him eat, study, write, and perform. While she pays for it! 0 – 0 kinda sounds like a fan.

  67. skydancer1x said

    ROFL Fen!! hahahaha
    I haven’t seen the menu yet,but pretty sure I am with you, Open door 7 for me.lol

    Soooo I am catching up..was a bit under the weather this week,but finally able to sit at my computer again.
    (I really need a laptop,lol)

    Jan missed out on the hugfest.so may I? {{{HUG}}}. Love those pics. You dear lady,are so special and giving♥

    Love that pic of David.
    Love that he is taking advantage of every opportunity,always moving forward. Always.I love that he is making his own decisions and looking to better himself with every new experience. I love that he is getting the education and college experience he always wanted to have.He certainly deserves to have it all.

    Bluesky, Please keep talking to yourself ♥ and sharing your lovely thoughts..I sure do love what comes from your heart :)

  68. Thank you Everyone for all the POSITIVITY and support I am hearing here for David. He deserves only the best of everything! David in control…is the best kind of David there is…in my opinion. Even though this is all a little bittersweet….saying goodbye to what was….I am happy when he is happy!!! I will continue to support him ….no matter how far!

    What a breath of fresh air I feel coming to this site…..the sky really ISN”T falling!!!! Hugs to you all. I will be back! You all are such great fans….and people. :) Please don’t go away!

    Hi everyone. :)
    Just wanted to say that I check the site every day even though I rarely comment. It’s good to see you guys.
    Also, after I saw a few nutty comments to David, I went a little nutty myself. Wrote a long, insane, ranty article.
    Deleted it.
    Negativity begets negativity. There is enough of that.
    I’m off now to eat a brownie, read, and heal.

  75. djafan said

    Betsy, “Negativity begets negativity. There is enough of that.”
    I agree. Also, when an assumption is repeated enough it suddenly becomes the gospel truth when in fact it’s someone’s opinion.

    Like your remedy :)

    Ray, Yes, there is but this guys profile says Los Angeles and he looks nothing like the the bb owner :)

    Linda posted this on twitter, good one.

    Sharon McM, Betsy, Ray,
    So nice to see you guys!

    75. Dja,
    Love that. Great words to live by!

    Have you ever started typing a post here and then realize David’s looking RIGHT at you, grinning at you, from the side-bar?

    hahaha Sorry, that just happened and for some strange reason it made me laugh and I wanted to share my smile. :)

  77. Abrra said

    MT
    You have EXPOSED my plan for POSITIVITY! David’s VOICE is so worth whatever time it takes to get the music right.

    Speaking for myself only, I support David 100% in any and all endeavors he chooses for his professional career. I have no interest or opinion where his personal choices are concerned. Simply a fan.
    Fan drama is not anything I care to read or participate in. I am so grateful to have the wonderful comments shared here on a daily basis. As Djafan said, we are solidly behind David and celebrate his career in a positive way.

    I encourage those who visit to comment instead of lurk because you never know how helpful your comment might be to help someone see a different side of an issue. If we all lurked, there would be a BIG, FAT, Blank page here. :)

    Congrat’s to David Archuleta’s Angels for reaching their Stand up to Cancer goal! ♥ And love David’s video from a few years back.

    75…Dja, thanks for posting the “Before” poem. So true! I think David goes by these words, by the way he acts and reacts.

    MT, yes I have had those eyes looking at me while I’m trying to type out a comment! :) When I see him while scrolling down, I have to say “hi” to him! I know, I’m nuts! haha It’s fun stuff! :)

  81. skydancer1x said

    On the mend nicely now MT and Dja, thanks.♥ Don’t know whats going on with my computer screen,but everything is huge….which “ain’t half bad”, as I look at the sidebar pics……duh..

    oh yeah,
    74. Betsy,yep.you are right.
    “Negativity begets negativity. There is enough of that.” Betsy,yep.you are right.( and hope you enjoyed your brownie. The ones I made last Saturday stuck to the pan.I mean really stuck.Finally got tired of chiseling them out in pieces and tossed them away,along with the pan) lol.Now I want one,haha

    Feeling better…thanks MT and Dja.

    Nice tweet from David

    Good Morning Everyone!

    Thank you for your warm welcome again. The fans here are always very
    kind and embracing. Even though I comment very infrequently, I always come here to celebrate and feel the warmth and caring of your words for each other and for David. The Voice is such a “soft place to fall”.

    I love the way you all are so supportive of David…his voice and his heart. David is following his heart now and living his life in such an honest and refreshing way. I really admire him for keeping his life “real”. When you care about someone, you are happy when they are happy. Education is a wonderful thing…in whatever way you learn. I am excited that David will have that experience in college. My memories of my college days are clearly some of my happiest memories. :) I feel that this will only enhance David’s life and enrich his experiences.

    David is Music….as well as so much more. His gift will always be shared in some fashion, as his voice and heart are one. This is a new beginning for him, but I feel that he won’t be leaving his music behind. While we wait…I am going to continue to live my life….that has been inspired so much by David’s positive example. :)

    Thank you all…. for continuing to celebrate and respect David.!!!!! He deserves your great support!

    Have a great weekend everyone….and keep your warm positive spirits alive!!! :) I have a busy one with my grands, but will stop by to feel the celebration going on here later.

    I will leave you all with this quote that I feel is so appropriate for David. :)

    “It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. The went out and happened to things.” ——-UNKNOWN

    HUGS TO ALL!!!! :)

    Hi Again….I am not sure how GMAX4 was posted on my comment above….as it should have been from Sharon McM. I guess word press still had GMAX4 was from days gone by!!! haha I have gotten braver in my older age to use my name! :)

    Sorry for my rambling!!!!

  85. MT said

    77. Abrra,
    haha You’re plan is a success!

    Sky,
    LOL I’ll gladly take the blame for that “ain’t half bad” experience. :D

    “Soft”? maybe….. ^_^….. in the heart. (where it counts!!)

    “plan for POSITIVITY! David’s VOICE is so worth whatever time it takes to get the music right” – I love that, Abrra. That’s how I feel, too. Plus I wouldn’t mind maybe a Christmas concert during school break!

  88. betsy said

    I am trying out my new headphones, this was the first thing I listened to. I haven’t heard it in forever, have no idea why I chose it. It is so good though.

    this is so gorgeous ♥

  89. jans11 said

    Sharon or Gmax4…whoever you are…love the rambling….nice to know others do it too! :)

    Oh, Bubbly…oh, yes!

    When I turned my Inspirational flip calendar for today, September 6, this is what it says and I thought it goes right along with the comments now. “Any hateful message is nonspiritual energy, and the more you consciously expose yourself to it, the more of it you’ll be inclined to attract into your life.” by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer. I think with the spiritual David, he puts out the great vibes and makes everyone that wants to absorb it, feel it, therefore act accordingly.

    Awesome to have you back. That’s a quote I have not read before. Makes a ton of sense :)

    Collegemom
    Agree about a concert. I could sure use some fresh videos for Unplugged!

    Betsy
    It’s the smile in his voice that makes that one so special.

    Jan
    That’s a great quote! It sounds a lot like the golden rule.

    Abrra

  92. Dayzee said

    Aw, Betsy. B.D. (before David) my need for headphones was nonexistent.. The quality of headphones was way off my radar. But now, every new piece of equipment must first be used with something David. If it does not work with David, then it does not work for me. Good to know you are enjoying Bubbly with your new headphones, and thanks for bringing the video here for us to share. David fans are so thoughtful.

    Jan I love your flip calendar. It is so true that negativity attracts only more of the same. Once you stick your toe into that darkness you soon find yourself drowning in it. Not a good thing

    Going to a wedding tonight. Hope to get back early enough for chat :)

  93. jans11 said

    Have fun at the wedding, Dayzee. I have to go to a church anniversary and I will be a little late for chat. But, still hoping to get here! :)

  94. djafan said

    Sharon, glad to see you back! If by soft you mean celebratory, respectful, supportive, loving fansite for David Archuleta and each other, yep!

    Collegemom, “A” concert would do. I know all woudn’t be able to attend but there would be videos. And I would do everything in my power to be there as would countless thers.

    Sky lol

    Awwwww Betsy just lovely, thank you! What headphones did you get?

    Dayzee, only the best for that voice!
