Miss Karrin Allyson,
I have noticed that it does not take much for one to fall in ove with someone. I have also experienced various degrees of love and fallen sometimes painfuly and other times blissfully head first into them. Kinda like that moment when you take a header over the handlebars of your bike, and bounce your noggin of the road. It never really hurts at first. In fact, sometimes it was a rather pleasant, warm, comforting feeling. Yes I fell off my bike alot as a child. It only hurt when you knew you were bleeding. Well, this morning I heard your voice and music, and have not yet bled. 25 words or less will not do this feeling or your talent justice. So all we can do I suppose is you keep on playing, and I'll never stop listening.
- Kevin Jones

Andrea & Chris,
Hope you have a nice fouth of July while I'm in Canada. I hope you're not to urked knowing that I'm having more fun than you. If you know what I mean.
