More notes from the
I want to thank you for
the beautiful performance you gave at the Lincoln Center in Fort
Collins, Colorado a couple of weeks ago. I was one of your spotlight
operators, and it was the most moving performance I have ever had
the pleasure to be a part of. Your profound honesty and the grace
and depth of your expression that you gave to those young people was
sublime, the like I have never seen before. They were very fortunate
to have had that experience, as was I.
I cannot thank you enough for having the courage and insight to be
sharing so much of yourself with this world. I wish you the best in
every moment. God bless you.
You didn't meet me, but
you met my son and boy was he impressed by you. Bryan is my
real son, but most of the kids on the Montreat trip from Arkansas I
call mine. I usually come on the trip and work with the
Arkansas Presbytery kids a lot so I was really excited to hear about
the trip. The overall, hands down, winner of the stories they
brought back to me was jamming with Paula! Thanks for touching
my son's life. He has had some rough things happen to him, and
last year was very close to falling through the cracks. He now
has a better vision, but at 18 he is still searching hard and the
Montreat trip always touches their life so powerfully. It is
through interactions with awesome people like you that makes such an
impact. So I am writing to express my gratitude to you, and to
tell you I hope to meet you some day, to hear your music and to
listen to your stories. Thank you so for touching my son's
life. I thank God for you.
p.s. Your CD is great. Bryan shared it with me

Just a quick note to thank you, as always, for your role at the
Gathering. Your skills for integrating music and culture into
our annual gathering is a big part of our success, and youíre always
a favorite of new and returning participants. Every year you
do something new that amazes me, and this year it was watching how
you integrate some seemingly random event into a song, mid-stream,
without missing a beat and only to strengthen your message!
You did it first in announcing Brynnís fellowship and then, during
the SODI meeting, in connecting a childís bug watching to the
serious work of OD in a cultural context. Wow, youíre good!
I know I speak for all my colleagues in thanking you for helping to
shape our organizational culture at Babcock.
