    Enlightening and inspiring as always. This is such a great group - my goal has been to understand how other people perceive lyrics and the expectations of different people upon hearing a new or still developing song. I've used many of the suggestions or ideas in my songs that come from the group and have grown immensely and gain a little more each time. I highly recommend this to any songwriter of any level. It's not just about getting critiqued - you can offer a unique idea or opinion that helps someone so it's fantastic for everyone from the beginner to the seasoned songwriter as anyone can learn something and contribute.

    Folks, I'm not going to make it tonight after all because of a work deadline, just can't leave here early enough to make it up to the city for it... I'm so bummed, I really wanted to come! The last one was so fun and I'm sorry to miss all your songs this time. I will totally bring my childhood friendship song to the next meetup where it can be off-topic :) By then it might even be sort of done.
