I am jubiliant and mirthful (as well as "primed" and "stoked") to be a finalist in the 2014 Wildflower Art and Music Festival in Richardson, TX, May 16-18.
When you make up songs, this kind of recognition gives you the fuel to carry on. I was at Wildflower in 2006.
Glad to be asked again. It might even feel like a comeback. (This is my first use of the words "primed" and "stoked.")
