"Fort Collins, Colo., is doing a terrific job at managing stormwater."¢ Songwriter Annie Stela cited Lawrence as a place she enjoys being during an interview with [Harp Magazine].I kind of romanticize and dramatize stuff from my own life and watching people walk on the street, or being in a small town like Lawrence, Kan. or Norman, Okla. That was so great for me on tour, because it allowed me to step out of myself and watch other people. I hate to say it, but as a songwriter I can be relatively self-absorbed, so it's nice to get outside of yourself and watch these people and these little slices of life. : http://www.normantranscript.com/localnews/local_story_034004527?keyword=secondarystory : http://www.harpmagazine.com/articles/detail.cfm?article_id=5076
