NEW SAz POLL: How do you plan to BEGIN.?

Today is August 5th. Tomorrow will be August 6th. And the day after that? August 7th. The day we have all been waiting for. Patiently. Calmly. With Zen-like composure. 🙂

How about you guys???

P.S. I see David’s “thank yous” from the BEGIN. liner notes have surfaced online. I want to wait to read them till I get my copy. (Yes, I am insane.) But if you can’t wait, have a look HERE.

  1. Patiently waiting……..Listening to Broken…..Did read the online liner notes and see some pictures….
    Have been Snip Free after listening once to 90 second clips. Admire your patience, Snowangelz :)) Fun Poll!!

  2. also printing all the Lyrics today to read, so when I listen, I can focus on the Voice and the Music…….and yes listen with the Heart. (Also has something to do with something David says on Liner notes)

    Well, I will definitely be listening over and over again but will also be listening with my heart (and a box of tissues) I’m sure (perhaps a little chocolate out of that vat too)! Love the poll, lol….and also love the photo up top, sweetest look. Think that may be from the Rainbow video, maybe?
    I’ve decided that Aug 7th will be for me, moi….I will have my downloads from Itunes, CDs will probably come later and I will be celebrating life, love, liberty, compassion, service and exceptional, beautiful music! Also helps that I start my vacation Aug 7th…will be my day, going to take this day for myself and David’s gift of etraordinary music.
    I did read the liner notes….I just jump in whenever I have the chance, no waiting for me it seems. Of course so sweet, sincere and heartfelt and his message to the fans…<3<3<3<3<3
    Aug 7th will be another great David day in history, the Zen-like composure may be somewhat put aside that day. 🙂

    • TOfan says:

      what an awesome way to start your vaca, pepp!!!! “the Zen-like composure may be somewhat put aside that day” bahahahahaha

    I plan to listen the first time outside. Maybe lying on the grass with my headphones in looking at the clouds. That sounds wonderful <333 Hopefully the weather holds out for that haha 🙂

    I am also holding out not looking at the liner notes! I don't think I've ever read the liner notes before physically having the cd in my hand. I don't know why but I just want to read them off that…

    BEGIN. has begun for me. I am no longer a registered preorderee; therefore, I cannot vote.

    I think I am now experiencing some form of survivor guilt for finding those CD’s on my porch yesterday morning and then learning it didn’t happen for everyone. What I am waiting for now is for other fans to listen to BEGIN. Hurry, please!

    I don’t want to be responsible for releasing any giant spoilers, so I am tied in knots and needing the universal “squeeing while discussing” to start as soon as possible. I will only say, there was music that made me smile and clap with delight (not required, as I was alone); and there was music that made me weep.

    Just wait until you get to that one part in BEGIN. where David… EEK! See what I mean? Hurry, please!

    • Looking forward to it Archugeezer!! Hoping tommorrow. Those I ordered from Sears were in Ohio Saturday according to Tracking. I’m in Iowa………Not too far!
      WalMart ordered shipped. Can’t figure out that tracking.
      Amazon and Deseret Book haven’t said.
      Itunes just in case.
      It will be nice when we squee and or cry together……….but first a quiet listen and a drive somewhere. :))

    • TOfan says:

      “survivor guilt” lolol … I would hurry up if I could, believe me, but tomorrow’s a holiday here so NO MAIL DELIVERY 😦 … thank goodness for iTunes, I’ll have to nap so I can stay up till midnight, hahahaha

  6. sweetonda says:

    I too can’t wait for everyone to have their copy of BEGIN. so we can all praise it’s glories together. But, I couldn’t help listening to my copy that I got in the mail yesterday…I’m not one to put off enjoyable things, lol. I was a kid who looked for the hiding places with Christmas presents! I’m so glad I got those new Bose headphones last week. What a difference good headphones make.

    Archugeezer, “Just wait until you get to that one part in BEGIN. where David… EEK!” <——yep, this! 🙂 It's divine!

  7. In case you haven’t heard, someone is recommending a Reality Show called Gushing with Geezer.
    Came up on twitter when I asked Janey if she would be Gushing with Geezer when her CD came.

  8. TOfan says:

    Heidijoy, “Gushing with Geezer” hahahaha… sign me up for THAT reality show!!!

  9. archugeezer says:

    Hahahaha! I may be able to just sit back and watch the show unfold ’cause I know what’s comin’ atcha.

  10. refnaf says:

    Oh TOfan, how this poll made me smile! I can provide the vat of choc for anyone who needs it! I will be listening with my whole heart, wide open for the healing I know his voice will deliver. Broken has already given me soo much as I spend my time living in an alternate universe….regular life on hold> living in the hospice with my Mom as she makes her final journey from this life. Although I am tired and emotionally exhausted, I am considering this a blessing to spend this time with her. She was hoping to go on Sunday but her body is still hanging on….whenever I get this music I know it will be just perfect.
    ((((hug)))) to all and I will am def wanting to be on Geezer’s reality show!!

    • abanana77 says:

      ((((((hugs)))))) Sounds like this album is coming out at exactly the right time for you <33333333

    • RamblingDA says:

      ((((hugs)))) I’m so glad you will have David’s music to help you heal.

    • archugeezer says:

      Thinking of you often, renaf. Sending {{hugs}} and prayers. I know the music on BEGIN. will bring you comfort and reassurance.

    • sweetonda says:

      ((((hugs)))) to you. Yes, thank goodness for David and the healing powers of his voice. BEGIN will bring you comfort. My prayers are with you.

    • TOfan says:

  11. emmegirl14 says:

    HopXing to get my CD’s today. How will I BEGIN. (after frantically ripping off the cellophane with my fang teeth and gnawing that dang tape off the top) – alone, in my car, with the top down (wishful thinking), a road less traveled (keeping others as well as myself safe) immersing, surrendering.

    {{ref ♥}}

  12. Hugs to you refnaf.

  13. peppertara says:

    Want to give {{{hugs}}} to refnaf, I know how it is. Yes, it is good that you can spend time with her. David’s music will definitely have a healing effect. It certainly did for me. Prayers to you and Mom. <3<3
    emmegirl….haha, love your anticipated BEGIN. response. No CDs for me today, holiday here.
    Tomorrow will be another story however!

  14. Kizzi says:

    !!!!REF!!!! My Mom was in hospice for 15 months. Such a bitter-sweet time. So exquisite to have those special moments to savor. My emotions were on a careening up and down roller coaster. Begin…End…Begin…End…all part of life’s continuous cycle. I felt very lucky to have had that time with my Mom. One part of life ends and then another part begins. Just W.o.W.

    Love ya’! Mega Hugs*Love*Kisses to you and your loved ones!

    My David-fan Grand Daughters shared these lyrics with me–a “Begin.” theme:

    Where do I Begin? ~ Andy Williams
    Where do I begin
    To tell the story of how great a love can be
    The sweet love story that is older than the sea

    Where To Begin ~ My Morning Jacket
    Up and up and up I climb
    When I came up I was so far behind
    My head takes a lickin’ but my heart keeps on tickin’ just the same
    Always startin’ over but somehow I always know where to begin

    Where Do I Begin ~ Idina Menzel
    Where do I begin…
    Starting with the things I haven’t said enough of
    Starting with the day you changed my life
    And ending with the way I feel tonight
    Where do I begin

    The End Where I Begin ~ The Script
    Sometimes tears say all
    There is to say
    Sometime your first
    Scars wont ever fade, away
    Tried to break my heart
    Well it’s broke
    Tried to hang me high
    Well I’m choked
    Wanted rain on me
    Well I’m soaked
    Soaked to the skin

    It’s the end where I begin
    It’s the end where I begin

    • TOfan says:

      beautiful, Kiz, you have some pretty special granddaughters there! ❤

      • Mano says:

        A psychiatrist is a piiahcysn who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders. I have a bachelor’s degree in the social services field. For several years, I have worked with children who have been diagnosed with mental disorders. It is upsetting to see children victimize at an early age and even more disturbing to see them as predators as early as 5 years of age, however knowing that I am doing my part to assist them in becoming functioning youths and adults is rewarding. The empathy, confidentiality and maturity of a medical assistant are definitely needed in this area. I enjoy establishing a rapport with these clients and helping them to find adequate coping skills to deal with their disorders, therefore I would like to work for a psychiatrist.I would not like to work for an emergency piiahcysn for several reasons. I will explain a few. Patients who come to the emergency center typically have serious injuries or trauma. I would not like to have my mind constantly focused on who is coming thru the door and how sever the prognosis is. Knowing myself, I know that would be my focus and I would not be very productive. Also, in the emergency room the staff has to be prepared for anything, I would prefer an area that focuses on a particular specialty. Most importantly, I do not wish to see excessive amounts of blood loss on a regular basis. Actually, not even a minimal amount of blood loss on a regular basis. Giving my opinion and thoughts about this specialty, I would not be an effective employee.

  16. peppertara says:

    Condolences refnaf, didn’t realize your Mom had passed. Hugs to you and yes, this new music will be very healing for you. ❤
