“Start Where You Are”

Today’s quote by Arthur Ashe was inspired by David’s post earlier this week. Whether or not his quoted words were from Ashe’s quote, or from a different source, they offer good food for thought!

fb David start where you are

I thought about how “starting where you are”  somewhat parallels his writing session where “Numb” was born. As he shared this past fall, in shows prior to singing “Numb,” he was in a frame of mind where he wasn’t sure he “wanted to do this anymore.”  Writing the song about those  feelings seems like a new beginning ( getting started) … a new approach to continuing but not in a way where he’ll feel like he’s “losing himself” as he felt in the past… “start where you are~”

Kim and Miss Bianca also shared some great ideas in comments yesterday:

Rolling in the Deep: Pancakes and Conversation

Isabeau Miller posted this fun & delicious looking photo Thursday on Instagram. Mmmm a deep stack of pancakes accompanied by “deep conversation!” What could be better? Hmmm wonder what the “deep” conversation was about? ;)

The instagram location is marked as “Big Al’s” and because (like David) I’m always up for food, I looked up “Big Al’s” … just in case I ever happen to be in the Nashville area. :wink: What a cute place! Looks like it’s a true neighborhood cafe!

LadyV Shares “Zootopia” With David ~ Did she find it relatable? ;)

tweet Lady V Zootopia

David’s music collaborator and friend Lady V (Victoria Horn) tweeted David the link to the Trailer #2 link for Zootopia. Zootopia is the new Disney film set to be released on March 4th!

In the mammal metropolis of Zootopia, Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin) enlists herself in the Zootopia Police Department. In order to solve the case of a missing otter, she ends up forming an unlikely partnership with con artist Nick Wilde (Jason Bateman) where they also come across a savage outbreak. SOURCE~ WIKI

The trailer shared shows a pretty humorous encounter between a quick little rabbit wanting to get things done with a very friendly and able but  S L O W  W O R K I N G  SLOTH! ;)  Pretty funny!

Request for Healing Thoughts and Prayers~


I am so very sad to be posting this news, but I believe that when we come together in support and belief,  we are strengthened and good things…  miracles can happen!It was devastating to lose our fellow David Archuleta fan/friend Jennifer Barry, suddenly and tragically this past summer. Now, her husband and son are facing a new crisis and fight. Sean, their son who is 10, was recently diagnosed with osteosarcoma ( bone cancer.) Sean has already began chemotherapy while they wait further results. If you are so inclined to pray, or offer thoughts of healing and well wishes, I know they would so greatly appreciate it. May God’s blessings and peace be with them through this journey and fight! As DavidDFT offered in the FOD comment on Christians fb, page stated: “CRUSH cancer, Sean!”

Below is the fb post that Christian shared, and the link to Sean’s Caring Bridge site.

Christian and Sean

Christian Barry added 40 new photos — at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital.

My son Sean’s MRI a few weeks ago escalated to more tests which confirmed the swelling below his knee is caused by a malignant tumor. He has bone cancer. Specifically Osteosarcoma. While more testing is being done to determine what stage his cancer is at, he was started on chemotherapy immediately. He is currently in his first week of a 10 week treatment plan which will be followed by surgery to repair the damage.

I wasn’t sure Sean would forgive me for giving him devastating news a second time in 6 months. He wiped the tears from my cheek and comforted me. Kids are amazing!

He is in excellent hands at OHSU’s Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. We are lucky to live within commuting distance to such an amazing resource. We are also lucky to have such loving and supportive friends and family. Sean has a tough road ahead but the talented people at OHSU are going to cure him and we will make it through together.

I’ve been trying to capture moments of Sean’s journey and have included what I have so far in this post. Also, I’ve started a CaringBridge site for him to hopefully aid in sharing his progress:http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/seanbarry

Stay tuned as we learn more… or with possible plans to send some “cheer” Sean’s way.

“Pokemon~  “A Heart So True” ~New Post and Pic from David!

I’m saying it (now) twice in this post…David and  kids are magic!!! Look at that smile!!!! ..Cute expression on “Pikachu, too!  ;)

IG pic David with kid in Pikachu hat

David shared some thoughts about a New Years resolution with all of us and asked how we were doing with ours. How exciting!! He’s learning another language to add to his (2) fluent languages of English and Spanish! What do you suppose he’s learning? Portuguese? French? Tagalog? ummm Slovenian or Croatian ? ;) I do hope he’ll share a few phrases with us, soon. I can easily see David as becoming a multilingual speaking man as he already sings in a number of languages! (English, Spanish, French, Latin, Italian, Tagalog, Portuguese…am I missing any?)

Happy Groundhog Day!

Shadow or no shadow? That is the annual question posed on February 2nd in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania! This little groundhog feels my pain! ;)

groundhog gif

Groundhog Day is observed on February 2nd, each year in the United States and Canada.  For a nice welcomed break during the winter, on this day the groundhog awakens from his nap and goes outside to see if he can see his shadow.  It is believed by many that if the groundhog sees his shadow that there will then be six more weeks of winter. If this is so,  he then retrieves back into his den and goes back to sleep.  If he is not able to see his shadow, the groundhog remains outside to play and people celebrate believing that spring is just around the corner.

Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania has been chosen as the site for the annual Groundhog day event.  Thousands of people come to the town of Punxsutawney on Groundhog Day for this day of celebration.

*UPDATE* Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow today soooo bring on the early Spring!!

What a great opportunity for David (if confirmed) !! Slovenia is nestled in the middle of Europe and Rick Steves (of Rick Steeve’s Europe) describes it as “ the least visited and most underrated of Europe’s alpine countries.” I hope David will be able to take in plenty of other European sites while there, and I hope some of the European Archies will be able to see the show! Pssst David~ my great grandparents came from Croatia and Dalmatia right next to Slovenia… gorgeous coastlines and islands! hope you’ll stop by and then hop across the water to Italy! :D

 While waiting for confirmation and to hear more, enjoy a tour of Slovenia complimentary of Rick Steves:

And some music by Paul Cardall~ yup, he plays a few tunes that we’ve heard David sing! :)

Carrie and Kari…on tour??

tweet Kari re- carrie underwood show

Kari tweeted last evening that she was at Carrie Underwood’s “2nd show” in Atlanta on the Storyteller Tour. Her tweet begs the question~ Was it tweeted in fine “Road manager ” fashion as she was there to take in the show, or is she perhaps in fact working for a bit  (during David’s pre-concert times) with Carrie? Who knows, but cool beans either way! Carrie is awesome!!

UPDATE: Question answered! Sounds like it was a great show for Kari to be a guest at! :)
