...i borrowed the above phrase from my friend maria popova's blog (http://www.brainpickings.org - it's awesome)...i think the phrase pretty much explains itself. i put a lot of time and effort into this blog and want you to have it and read it for free. if you want to give me some help for the time and effort, THANK YOU. you can either kick me back directly through paypal using the button below, or if you want to take some MUSIC TOO (even better, yay!) go to the store section and kick me back through paying what you want for an album or a song.

    I just finished listening to The Art of Asking during my commute – I feel like over the past couple weeks Anthony has become an old friend. It feels wrong to grieve over someone I never met, especially someone I never met. But I can’t stop listening to this song.

    Also – Been a fan since I was 12, your music was one of the things that bonded my husband and I in the early days. Thank you for all the things you never knew you helped me live through.
