LJ, Natalie here, from Austin. I haven't seen or heard hide nor hair of you for many years now, but your music remains in my heart as clearly as if it were yesterday that I first heard you.
I hope you are well and happy. I am still making recordings. I know what you mean about the live versions. They are like gems, natural, like music is supposed to be.
I am recording new ones down here as well, some live one time takes in the studio and others with my trusty metronome. I don't know if you ever go to Kerrville anymore. I quit camping in soaring temperatures back in 2005. I am submitting my new songs this year to see if I can get on the big stage.
You take care. I knit. I always think of your YARNS song when I am knitting. It rings more true today than it did when I was much younger.
Hope to see you down the songwriting road.

Good to hear from you. I am a happy guy (thanks for asking).
I look forward to crossing paths also. When I get done with grad school, I'll be out playing more again.
Hope all is well with you and yours.
LJ, for several years you were playing a song with the chorus that included "....road song echoed down through the wheel well..." and refrains of "...put a 1/4 in the belly of my beat up olds" "with more creases in the body than a map has folds" What was that song? Where can I find the lyrics? who wrote it? I still remember how to play it but can only hum 99% of it. Many Thanks, Pete CadmusLJ Booth responded on 11/11/2013 Next question
When will you be back to Colorado - specifically the Boulder/Ft Collins area? The last few times you were here, I was out of town for work. Sigh...
