I just read David’s FB post. Is it just me or does he sound about 45 years old here? World-weary and reflecting on quality time missed and time passing much too quickly. Makes me a little sad for him, tbh. And the teary emoji?? *sobs*
I can totally relate because at his age I’d also played a parental role in helping to raise my younger siblings.
“Kind of had to be the dad in a lot of ways in recent years” … not gonna lie, my jaw dropped at this part.
Oh the weight that’s been on David’s young shoulders.
I don’t know what he has planned for the future, he’s certainly keeping us in the dark for the most part… either because he’s conflicted about having fans at all, he isn’t sure what path he’s taking right now or he just doesn’t feel like sharing. Fair enough.
His FB account recently posted a message asking us to “track” him, which I find confusing … track what? The height of his socks? *ducks flying projectiles*
It feels very strange being a fan of his right now… I feel as though I’m a fan not of a pop performer in the public eye but just a guy who just wants to live his life. Which of course I’m happy he’s doing … ecstatic actually… but it makes me feel like some kind of weird stalker so I think it’s time for me to back off blogging about him.
I love you guys though, especially the smart, funny, kind peeps who take the time to comment here, I always look forward to hearing your take on things.
To quote Arnold Schwarzenegger… I’ll be back… whenever a hint of a David Archuleta music release whispers on the wind. (Leaked songs count too. *hint hint* )

Peace be with you all. ♥
