Mr. Moderator,

Please clarify your statement so I may make an adequate rebuttal.

So BH, I guess that I wasn't around much when you were active here. But why would you "all but quit singing" if people are still talking about you in a good way? Seems that if you have the gift you'd want to use it. Secondly, why would people be worried? Just trying to figure out the history of PW.com :regular_s

nothing
 
I was active on this board for several years when it first began. I chose to distance myself from it due to the fact that the southern singing forum became inundated with the same type of topics of ?whos the best this? or ?whos got the best that?. It seemed to be a place for lots of folks to post rantings about themselves with pseudo names, just to inflate their own egos.

I can honestly say that I have sung with the best of them. They range from the famous head singers of most of these drums listed on here to many of the old guys that nobody ever mentions. Something that I find in common with most of ?the greats?, is their attitude and humility. I would venture to say that most of them could care less about what powwows.com or thinks of their keen voice or how high they can sky. It is however just conversation I suppose. Passes the time when you have nothing more constructive to do?I guess.

As for me; my job moved me out of OK and I guess I was sorta spoiled with being able to sing every weekend and not have to drive more than an hour or so. Now, I really just don?t feel like driving. When I do go to powwows, the drum seems to be full of lots of non-singers making it more difficult for those that do sing. You hate to question their reason but it sure makes it hard to make good music. I guess that?s why there are so many individual groups today. But anyway??

As for me, some gifts are better left at home. I generally dislike seeing my name listed in these forums and use to ask the moderator to delete it whenever it came up. I hadn?t been on here in a while so I was shocked to see it pop up again. I especially don?t like to be compared to other individuals. For those of you that know me; you know that I am quite unique and I don?t like to be grouped or stereotyped.

Let me get off this soapbox before I fall!

"Blow".....

as defined in my previous post...singing with confidence, knowledge and strength

I have nothing to hide. You know who I am. You and I sat across from one another about a month ago....three drums apart.

Hornet,

I hear where are you are coming from.

I think now, more than ever, more and more people (if they haven't done so already) are recognizing you for being you and the things you have accomplished. This is not to say that everyone has, or even will. The way I, and I'm sure a lot of other people, see it is that this attitude towards the "gift" as hobbs49 describes it is one of humility and accomplishment. Not that I am saying you are, but that is nothing to be ashamed of. And your qualifications, as you have mentioned, people know these things and respect you for your "care" of the drum, the songs and the way of our people.

This is why and where you and your name are "grouped" or "stereotyped" with those names.

aho
