I would love to film a small one like that one. I don't think I could manage a big one. Right now I just wish I had a digital camera. I think that would be so much fun.
Thank you for your very kind words. That was really touching.
I love Sarah Brightman. A lot. I don't know why I haven't favorited her music more on youtube. I need to start doing that.
It's OK, about the crying. Yes, literally when one cries, it rids the body of toxins. Did you know men have smaller tear ducts than women? Interesting, eh?
I haven't looked at the words for Pie Jesu yet, but I will. I just love her voice on that for some reason.
Here's another song. I 'll try not to be annoying about this. I like music; it's been fun to share.
I left a comment on your blog about your dad, qimi
It is a really great video. Sorry for the song that made you cry. Actually, I'm quite sensitive and often weep at certain scenes and songs. I don't think it's wrong to be sensitive. I believe it's a way to clean the soul. Have you ever filmed a video? I haven't, but I'd love to be a movie director. It must be wonderful to create a story.
Thank you too, for the link to Pie Jesu. It had been long since the last time I listened to it by Charlotte Church. I am more familiar with Sarah Brightman's version, because I have her full discography, being a big fan of Sarah's Do you speak Latin? Do you know what the song says? In case you don't, I have this link with lyrics and a few translations (I don't know which one is the most accurate because I don't speak Latin, though I have a friend who does and I should ask him)
Thank You, Max, for your kind words about my dad. He lived a good long life, and I'm glad for that. It's hard to know I will never get to see him again. We tried to say good-bye as lovingly as we could. I wrote a little about it in my blog, if you care to look:
I'm glad you liked the video. Amazing, wasn't it? I would love to be able to film something like that. It looks like it would be easy, but you know it wasn't. And thank you for the song. It made me cry a little. Actually, it makes me think of my parents. I don't know which is more beautiful, the song, the girls, their singing, or their dresses. I'm sending you another song; it is not really apropos of the theme of either the video or the song you sent, just one beautiful song inspired by another.
I couldn't help seeing your conversation with firefangled about your dad passing away in December. I'm so sorry. Be strong
I enjoyed the video so much that I had to download it. I had to weep a bit (I'm rather sensitive to touching experiences, you see). It was like staring at a lifetime in a few minutes. Bunch of thanks
Dunno if you ever listened to this song, but since I like it a lot, here it goes: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UQP2KK5RBHY
a moment in time:
Well, we now have a deal for the two of us
I want to travel! But that dream always seems to have to wait! I read "Do Travel Writers Go to Hell?" by Thomas Kohnstamm this summer, who travels to South America to write for Lonely Planet. Funny.
If I ever get down that way, I'll hold you to that, and will willing reciprocate if you ever make it to Dallas (which, by the way, is also semi-arrid, at least in August ). As it happens, I still haven't been to see the Sixth Floor museum (all about the JFK assassination in Dallas).
Here's to travel and to being weary travelers!
By the way, should you ever come to these latitudes I'd gladly be your guide
