lose your dreams and you will lose your mind, ain't life unkind?


Forever's No Time At All

Rachel invited me to be on ITA.
I was dreaming about that happening! Never thought it would. I don't know what to do! Am in a state of shock. Hopefully she meant this Wednesday. If next, then I will just have to quit school!
So you guys really wouldn't mind hearing me play a song or something in the same room as Rachel and maybe even...Pete?
Thank you for cheering me on and letting me know you wouldn't mind. I am still in shock right now. Rachel, you are an angel. Of course you are, I already new it. Wow.
Last song I will post...I fell in love with this song so badly. Come off of my favourite Pete solo album entitled "Who Came First". Billie Nicholls sings it, amazing. Michael McInnenny's wife wrote it. Pete plays lead.
Perfect day to post it because today seems to be the best one I've ever had.
I love all of you!

Forever's No Time At All
Billie Nicholls/Mclumemy

And nothing sure is forever
When forever's no time at all
As I lie amongst the heather bed
High above the ocean's roar

I seem to hear my name being called
Yet who am I waiting for
And I love the lover who loves with
All the love he has and more

And now that the summer's ending
And your baby cries out to sea
I do feel that I am drowning
In the love that you're sending me

And now that the summer's ending
And your baby cries out to sea
I do feel that I am drowning
In the love that you're sending me

Hurah! Yeah for Claire.

Fingers crossed that the appearance on attic comes together for you. I was telling Ballerina Gurl about it this afternoon, she's in California.

Wish we were in London, it is a blast, you'll never forget this time of your life Claire, so magical. Savor it, when you're my age, these are the memories that keep you going.

Yes, Claire, dear, we want you In the Attic. We love you, and most of us who blog to you have never even met you. So there!

Your talent, heart, spirit, and soul shine in everything you write and post. I'm so happy for you, and I can't think of a better guest for Rachel and Mikey and hopefully Pete and Simon (and Stuee?) to welcome. I hope it works out.

Looking so forward to your special appearance. Just be your lovely self, and you'll be great!

Big hugs,
Brina (in Oregon, while you're in England)

You are FREAKING ME OUT little lady!
I've been thinking about you ALL DAY today, wondering if you were there in London and what you were up to...and then your message just pops up on my screen???
OMG good thing I'm sitting down.
This is really really amazing...the telepathy I mean.
You have to tell Pete and Rachel this!
I'm just kind of plugged into everyone's joy lately, and I'm loving the ride.
So PLEASE tell me more - did you play Pete's guitar at his house or at the Hard Rock?
I was going to leave Rachel a message today tellling her how I think she is wonderful for having you on the show.
You are just one big cutie pie, so sweet. I hope and pray my daughter turns out to be just like you.
She's a rock and roll gal too...she likes keyboards though.
I HAVE to get up early to watch you (it's 3 A.M. in Taipei).
You just enjoy yourself and savor every moment. (Oh I just saw tht Gary wrote the same thing, but I didn't read that until now!).
He's right though - when things get a little rough,and they are bound to, you can think back to this magical time in your life and relive those memories over and over. So true, Gary.
Good things happen to good people, this I know...
Oh so much positivity around here, I'm all teared up.
(I'm Italian, what can I say?).
Take care, sweetie.
Lots of love and good wishes,
aka SWHO

Of course we want to see you perform on ITA!!!
My kids are so happy for you! They tease me that I wish I had a daughter like you, one who loves the same music as me, so we wouldn't fight over the radio!!! When I told them you would be on the show, they couldn't believe it! My 14 year old said you are really special, and she wishes you the best of luck & hopes you get on the show. She may even get to come home early to see you LIVE!!!

We rooting for you!!!

Awesome Claire. You will love London, I grew up there until I was 11. Being invited to be on ITA, double awesome. I will not be able to see this weeks ITA, if you are there with Rachel and Pete, have fun.

Sweet Claire,
I really hope to see you on ITA on Wednesday. Blow them away with your All Along the Watchtower. We will all be watching you, sweetheart!
Enjoy your trip!

Claire, I'm bubbling over with excitement for you. Also, if you feel shy when you're on ITA, just remember who's in the audience. And I know Mikey and Rachel will put you at ease.

Love, Brina

Claire, I am the LAST person to ask about quitting school. But I am in with the rest here, at your ear and at your hand, encouraging you along into one time that will be the tip of stand out "times in your life".

Claire ITA, Claire ITA!

But it's the 'tip' Claire Elize.

We expect you to give Hillary Duff some competition tommorow... :). You'll do just fine, just start at point A, end at point B, and kick maximum butt (or maximum R&B) in between.

Give it all you got.

Look forward to the show!

OMG Claire, you were great! I've been kinda sick, so I missed everything until the actual day you were on!!!
But at least I saw it!

You were fantastic, so natural, like everyone said over at Rachel's. And you did look so much more grown up!
I hate to say it, as much as I absolutely love your profile pic, just LOVE it, and you know that, maybe it is time for a new one. You do look much older than this pic,
so I suppose it really is not a good representation anymore. Sigh.
When I saw you I thought "Claire is so much more grown up looking than I thought!"
So I suppose it's time for a change, you were right a long time ago when you wanted to change it. :) xoxoxo
