Thread Name: Where are you?
Subject: RE: Where are you?!
Thanks everybody for your stories. I was afraid to be hassled for launching a non-strictly-serious topic.Sorry about that.

I ferociously ate up dinner in front of the screen reading all postings.A most enjoyable meal.

Looks like I'm abosluty in the majority by being far from where I was born.This thread actually came during an attach of homesickness.I'm actually realizing there's a place I should call home.I'd like it to be here-where the wind is generous,the colours astound you etc-but looks like a certain olive grove on some italian hill is singing me home.

And you're lucky you can take folk music with you! Central Italy folk music was strangled by Opera singers so long ago(I hate Opera....)and if yoiu're a homesick italian there's nothing you can sing about.

Happy staying and happy travelling. Lena

P.S.Callie,where in Sydney are you?! I'm in Darlinghurst ,if you may. I thought Sydney to be a very un-folkie place(but a great one)...
