Waaaaaay back in 2011, I think I was so floored by D’s Announcement because I sensed it signalled the end of an era. A really really really fun era. I had the feeling that nothing was ever going to be quite the same.
I never doubted David would always make music. But even he had no way of knowing how his mission experience … and two solid years of growing up… would take him to a new place in his life. A new place that’s still evolving. After all, we’re all works in progress, right?
But when I saw this post from Ana, it felt like a message, somehow. I don’t mean I’m letting go of being a fan. As long as there’s David music in this world, I’ll be listening to it like no other. But letting go of OTT ODD. I mean, it’s time, don’t you think? 🙂
He’s writing songs and singing when it feels right and says he’s excited for what the future brings, and so am I. He’s in a new place and I feel like I need to let go of what was and let him be where he’s at now … to stop living in the David past.
Sure, I loved the random tweets and vlogs of days gone by… what’s not to love? So it made me sad to hear David say he’s never liked doing vlogs.
I don’t want him to suffer period, but definitely not just to please fans. And it looks like he’s done doing that. All good. For in taking back his life, he’s giving us back ours. Time to flip the page.
