I hope you are well, Symphony.
I'm sure school is keeping you busy. How's it going?
Of course we would love to see more of you.
Thank you, Symphony, for the friendship request.
Have responded to the best of my ability. Best wishes
Merry Christmas Symph. We haven't spoken in a while. I hope you have a special holiday.
Here's a present and a card for you.
Would you like to vote in our Short Story Competition final?
Oh, I'm so glad you found and like it! How is your French? Would you like me to send you a translation - or you can google it. I LOVE to sing this song and the lines
""Si tu vois mon pays, mon pays malheureux,
Va, dire a mes amis que je me souviens d'eux."
just break mu heart. But then, maybe because I'm a Jew, I'm a sucker for any song about yearning. Did you know that Israel's national anthem, Hatikvah (The Hope) which speaks of the yearning to return to one's homeland existed long before the establishment of the state of Israel!
Thank you for your well wishes, Symphony. Thanks for sharing Sampson with me. You sing beautifully and it was a wonderful addition to my day.
I posted a response on your blog as firefangled, but it listed me as Anonymous. I signed my name too.
As it happens, earlier this evening I did listen to a couple of your Youtube presentations, the Iron & Wine one & the Norwegian one. I did regret not seeing you in the video.
After a perplexing day with "The Memory Artists" by Montreal writer Jeffrey Moore, I'm going to see if there's anything worth watching on TV or will creep into bed early.
Oh thank you so much thank you for your VM, symphony! only your nickname is already so touching! as is what you write. I read here Niamh wished you happy birthday, so I hope I can join Niamh and send you my heartfelt wishes of all good, of inspiration for whatever you're passionate about, of good health and spirits! cheers! and thanks again!
