And the beat goes on…
Here in our little corner of the world, things are chugging along. I appreciate, so deeply, those of you who push on our behalf to get our Open Letter to One Republic read. That’s so amazing.

In a large sense, I feel so guilty posting day after day on Twitter about the letter. I feel like I may be spamming the snot out of these poor people. But the reality is probably that there are so many people posting, posting posting, that it’s easy for my little note to get blown by. These are busy men with a hectic tour schedule, and we’re only one small voice among thousands that are clamoring for their attention. I mostly tweet directly to One Republic and Eddie Fisher, but I do tweet the other band members occasionally. E. Fisher favorited two tweets that mentioned the letter, so I am hoping that means he actually read it. We have a couple of months until June 28th, so I’ll just keep plugging away.
Vale is doing fantastic. His eating is so good that I wonder if we’re really looking at that elusive ‘R’ word that I dread saying…. recovery. I avoid thinking it in case we’re not and then I’m disappointed. Nothing like a true defeatist attitude, right? He’s gaining some weight, eating with
very little actually no pushback. He even serves himself ice cream nearly every day. It’s rather amazing. He was even on the track team for a while, but due to his performance academically, we had to pull him from it. That was very hard, because I know he loves track so much. We’ve even absconded with his instruments, because he’d come home from school and play and play and neglect homework. *sigh* I understand his passion for music, believe me, I do. Heck I’m a classically trained soprano for cryin’ out loud! But I’m old enough to know now that an education is very important. We have set up a deal that he can earn back on instrument a week by showing me his French and Chemistry homework. So send him a note virtually kickin’ his butt to get his homework and studying done, okay? Maybe we’ll post a video of him playing. Now THAT would be groovy!
You want a video of Vale playing? Tweet him up to One Republic, will ya? Send us a message, we always love to hear from you!
