Patti in response to your question about why there are so few responses to songs posted on the songwriters circle.

I had asked if someone posts a song that they give feedback on at least 2 other songs in hopes to keep the forum active. Hope that helps.
Patti, I think Safe Surfin' is very clever. It is certainly thought provoking. I love the "everyday" illustration. Road to Success has such a beautiful chord progression. The guitar sounds beautiful. You are a folk singer for sure, and prophet. All About You, is just lovely. I love the simplicity and ease of the songs, though the chord progressions are pretty complex sounding. I like the way you bring the music around. Its reminiscent of hymn writing for me!
