You’ve heard it before, that genuine gratitude is one of the keys to a happy life. What we think about and THANK about, we tend to bring about.  So today I am especially thankful for this particular Paul Reed Smith guitar. It’s new to me, and was part of the prize for winning the lyric writing competition for American Songwriter Magazine recently.  It was my song “Evangeline” that took home the prize, and I was honored to be interviewed in this month’s issue. Thank you American Songwriter, thank you Paul Reed Smith, thank you listeners and fans and music lovers wherever you are. I am grateful, inspired, and ready to write on!
