Yes! He is! Woah!
Better still, he is reaching out to us with music – through all the Sold-Out Shows in Richfield and Queen Creek.
An album of new music was something I’ve been ravening for, but seeing David reaching out so enthusiastically to his fans (Touch My Hand again after so many years of comparative ‘distancing’ from him? Wowza!!) .. and seeing his fans reaching out to him so eagerly, covering miles and miles to attend his shows, filling the arenas to packed sold-out houses, and responding to him and welcoming him again into their hearts as if he had never left, as if he is again their angel of inspiration .. has filled me with a warm glow of content – for the time being anyway until the new music comes – yes, like you, I will forever be greedy for David’s successes.
Is it a matter of self-confidence that he is opening up more to be touched (by the hand, hello!) and to deal with “I love you’s” with less embarrassement? Is he feeling more self-assured that “it is ok” to be both emotionally and physically close to his fans? Has he finally realised that the “lunacy” of his Archies is harmless? That we are “nice” (ahem!) people who will not ruffle his hair (is that the reason for his chopping it off every week?), will not rip his clothes (jacket + shirt + unknowns) and will not destroy his self-respect and dignity? 😛
Yes! Reach out, David! 😉
And the Fans’ reach-outs to him!!
David is definitely learning to be more confident – the Real Man that he is!! 😉 Yeah!! 🙂
I prefer this stance though – the ‘natural’ Real Man! 😉
