Hello, Racheal

My name is Pond.
I just go to your concert in Korea.
I went from Thailand for your concert.
After the concert you hug me. OMG :-)

I just start listen to your song last year on Youtube then I think OMG. I ask myself why I really love all of your song. it's the truth.
then I buy your album. It's hard to find in my country. (Thailand)
But I can find it afterthat I love your voice more and more and every sound that your make it's so great. Awesome.


May I ask your something?
- What is your favorite artists?
- What is your favorite songs?
- When you feel you want to start to write a song? and how to start?
- How you find an inspiration for write a song?
- Sometimes when you feel unhappy how do you do?

Thank you for answer my questions.

- What is your favorite artists?
Hi Pond! Thanks for writing! Fav artists: Elton John, Joni Mitchell, Cat Stevens, Roberta Flack, Rufus Wainwright, Carole King…. So many!

- What is your favorite songs?
I love ’So Far Away’ by Carole King

- When you feel you want to start to write a song? and how to start?
I like to free write these days. Sit outside with a pad of paper and just do stream of consciousness journaling. There are often cool nuggets hidden in there.

- How you find an inspiration for write a song?
I observe a lot and when something hits me emotionally - that’s when I start wanting to articulate it.

- Sometimes when you feel unhappy how do you do?
I think nature and friends can be very healing. We all have to support each other because everyone has bad times. Life is short, so we have to enjoy all we can!


Thanks, Pond - you are so sweet! Your English is fantastic! Best wishes to you and your music!!!
