    Thanks for the photo, Dja. Just so dang cute! 🙂 David, watch that you don’t catch cold…we don’t want you sick and lose your voice! Just grandma here… 🙂

    From previous post…love the puzzle…the colors were beautiful. And David singing Up Above the Northern Lights is one of my favorites! Thanks, Lynne

    Love to see David enjoying the Utah snow. Like Angel “Makes me feel all good and happy!” Funny how that works. Every time I visit this place that’s exactly how I feel. Thanks Abrra for explaining the quote to me. I never would have known. Haha

    Grandma Jan, David does look frozen, but robust. I think he is OK.

    I have one. The only “item” I have. Not a collector. ^_^ But my sister-in-law bought one for me as a gift, the one concert she attended with me. I went with her to hear Josh Groan and she came with me to hear DA. Fun times.

    (I wore it during a trip to Europe with two of my teenage sons. They were a tad embarrassed.

    It was good for them.)

    I really like this version better than how he has done it in the past. Before he paused and did the “audience participation” piece. Here instead, he treated us to -the music in his head- and just let them clap along. A great improvement in my book!!!

    He is able to not only keep the momentum of the beat and the general movement of the song/message, he rides it right along and up the ante with his vocal pyrotechnics.

    Fireworks, DA. Do you have a license?

    #27….. Abrra, that is an awesome message!! It’s so true. Sadly, we don’t reflect on this idea very often when thinking about any kind of art. We just want what we want when we want it. I’m pretty sure this will cause me to think in a different way about any kind of art.

    When I read that message in #25 it reminded me of how hard an artist works for their art. It can’t be rushed and every artist has to be allowed to create, no matter how long it takes. What we see hear or read, in the end, is a pure expression of who they are.

    Abrra,
    I completely agree. I think it’s just so hard for us to realize that. We get so restless. We think they can crank their creations out on a whim, and it just isn’t that way. Some things look and sound that way to a lot of us– if it’s an art form that we don’t enjoy. But, in reality, it’s taken that artist just as much pondering and doing as it has the other — the ones that we enjoy. jmho

    Although #25 is true, David gave us 3 albums to be released while he was gone those 2 years and now that he’s been back almost 2 years there isn’t even one released yet. I know he is particular, but I bet he sings in perfect pitch even if he’s singing in the shower or singing to his dog! 🙂 I know that he hums in perfect pitch too! 🙂 C’mon David we want that new album! 🙂 jmo 🙂

    What the quote in #25 is talking about is appreciating the original creation of art. Recording covers or re-releasing music is not as difficult to accomplish. If “Numb” is any indication of the complexity of his new style, it’s worth the wait to me.

    Fenfan: Oh, I wish he were going to where you are. And I believe he will. He has not forgotten!

    “For a good number of years, Slovenians have been caught in the politically sensitive debate on the quality of that care. Standing with families and children are several support associations including the Slovenian Heart Foundation.

    Tying all this together is Cardall’s heart transplant six years ago. Since birth, he suffered with CHD. He was born with basically “one-half a heart.”

    Four points of purpose were aligning. Within weeks, all entities would arrive at a pinnacle where all stood for one purpose: Children and families who need community to be actively aware of the number one, worldwide birth defect and the need for more science and better care.”

    Paul Cardall gave a benefit concert in Slovenia last Sept for children born with a heart defect. Perhaps this concert is in someway related to that event. I am posting a link to the full article from last Sep 2015 below. The article appeared in Meridian Magazine, an LDS online publication.

    Paul Cardall sounds like another musical miracle like David. Kudos for everything he does for people experiencing heart problems.

    Tawna, so glad that David stayed in music so Paula’s “destined for stardom” will come true. I feel that Paula really did get David and knew he would be big, she seemed to really love his voice…Randy did too. And like a lot of other fans, I am here waiting for that to happen….”he is destined for stardom”! YES!

    I don’t think he knows, or does he? Or should he?

    I’ve actually been listening to Paul Cardall. His piano playing is good, so good it doesn’t bother my hearing because so far to date only David’s voice will do. All other voices actually bother me lol.

    His is a heartwarming story. It is a good cause. And what an opportunity for exposure in a whole other audience. It will bode him well IMO 🙂

    Brian Passey who writes for the St. George newspaper (The Sprectrum) wrote “While the singer seemed at home on the stage while performing, the dialogue between songs was at times awkward. It occasionally took him a few minutes to get to the point of what he was trying to say. He rambled a bit. But somehow it was endearing. He seemed genuine and unfettered by the fame he found early in life.” Endearing 🙂 Yes

    When those nice people at Queen Creek put my ticket into the envelope they also tucked in a lovely bookmark with David’s picture on it. How nice! Well, there were five other performers on the bookmark, but David is the one I see. Do you suppose the fans of those other performers do not notice David? I was thinking how strange that would be. Probably not happening.

    Great pic of David with the Valentine table cloth. Seems he always looks extra smiley when he has a full plate. Everything looked so good it made me hungry. Back to the kitchen.

    Love David’s blog. I thought he knew by now that he shouldn’t have to worry about what others think. With his voice, all I care is he can sing and I can listen! Ying and yang…for sure! Guess he might always be that way. I can talk one on one but clam up in front of a lot of people..afraid to say the wrong thing….have always been that way. But when I went into cosmetology, I just kept on and feel comfortable in it after 45 yrs! You go David!!!!
