Always knew David is an old soul! :)
Looks like his short crop is here to stay. ;)
And everyone is liking it! :)
Potential college mates? :( :)
Must be so lovely meeting up again with an old friend. :)
“It’s time to do it.”
Do what, David?
Is he WISHING to go back to Chile?
Is he WANTING to go for a college education?
Or is he HOPING to re-start his singing career soon?
Whatever it is, it sounds very much like he is on the verge of making a firm decision – and No Regrets.
Or is this tweet one of David’s random quotes picked up from a fellow-Utahn who is a well-known rugby coach named Larry Gelwix whose life history, and that of his team, inspired the film Forever Young.
Larry Gelwix also said ” Have you ever felt you completed something but you could have done it better?”
Whatever prompted David to send this tweet, it is putting a lump in my throat. Is David talking about a firm decision made about his music… or is it something else that we don’t know about?
Why do I feel that a foreboding is imminent … or is it the looming of a huge sense of elation? … I really can’t tell.
Much as I am often intrigued by David’s sense of fun in communicting and vague sense of mystery in tantalising his fans, I am now all over the place reading this tweet. I don’t like this feeling.
That’s the trouble with David Archuleta. He has the ability to send us into a state of delirium – the pits of doldrums or the heights of ecstasy.
Oh well, we asked for it. Let’s just wait and see.
Archies are immeasurably resilient … but they are also an impatient lot. Including moi. :)
Expectations are high and unrealistic that David should literally jump from the plane straight into the recording studio .. exchange his missionary scrolls for music scores and badass lyrics .. achieve a super-fast hair-growth .. and totally resume his rockstar persona in a flash.
This “can’t wait …!” syndrome needs re-programming to “just gotta wait .. ” - I tell myself .. and to you. ;)
Patience (oh no! not that word again!!) is not an absence of action – says American Bishop Fulton J Sheen.
Rather .. he says, it is timing. It waits on the right time to act .. for the right principles and in the right way.
While we frustrate ourselves in a “Still Waiting .. ” mode, David has been keeping himself busy, or so I think from what I read on the net.
First he has been playing “catching up” with his sisters drawing squiggles on some game called “Snap something or other” – the full name of which alludes me at the moment. Then there is some bonding in Spanish with dear Papi, and probably exchanging some fashion tips with each other on “how to best wear plaids”.
Then meeting up for breakfast with Shay must have been more than “entertaining” being choked on toast and Shay’s bizarre jokes and bigger-than-life kinda fun.
Meeting up with neighbours is a big thing for David despite his constant introspectiveness and because of his generosity of spirit.
Then of course there is the gastronomical aspect. Bet he has covered all the cool restaurants. Going to a Banana Leaf Restaurant? Is it the same as our Malaysian Mamak ones?? The food looks the same to me. :)
His gourmet journey continues…. he was caught red-handed by this nice lady in a cheesecake factory. And her daughter tweeted it – fuming and “way jealous”! Who wouldn’t be?!
A N D … Is this piece of news after his visit to the office of Seventy3 Music pertaining to work and preparation for music business soon? … or is it another piece of Archies’ speculations about music or otherwise? ;)
Yes David, we all have our fears. What are yours? :)
Are you masking your fears with constant smiles, David?
Concealing the worries and pressures you carry with you?
Are you struggling with uncertainties you do not want known
Camouflaging doubts with smiles on cue?
Open up, reveal your grief and fears, David
Pen down your tears, uncover your anguish deep inside
Let us be your pillar, your inspiration
With your music, you can in us your woes confide
I have read that many have expressed the worry that David’s mission seems to be unending. But, for me, the keywords of David’s tweet is: “Each day lets see what we can do to do this.”
I am not a Christian but, as far as possible, everyday of my life, I try to celebrate in my heart the spirituality of Jesus and pain at the culmination of the Passion of Christ.
In my books, David’s tweet was not a proselytizing one. It was a spiritual message of love – one we all need now and again, to remind ourselves to turn to one as great as Jesus to guide us through life.
The tweet also proves to me that David has an open mind to the many different faiths in the world .. considering Palm Sunday is really not a Mormon thing ..
Watch this with an open mind and HAVE A LOVING AND MEANINGFUL EASTER! :)
And with Mint Brownies too! :)
