Thread Name: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Very comforting & reassuring to read so many responses. The media, of course, tends to concentrate on the worst hit areas (more opportunities for dramatic pictures & hyperbole). Your posts provide a broader view which the 'news hounds' would rarely bother with. All the life boats aboard The Rainbow are at your disposal, should the predicted thaw happen sooner & quicker than desired (being a metaphorical ship, the number of lifeboats is unlimited...naturally!)

Manuel, you were correct about my (sp.?)...one of those words that is so familiar to me & having typed it, the doubts crept in. Thank you for the affirmation. Ann's card party was successful, due largely to the efforts of our two Granddaughters who visited every house in their road, knocked on the doors & delivered a personal invitation. They also made mince pies & warmed up a huge panful of mulled wine. When Jane was still with us, the first card party was her idea. It was an absolute delight & very moving to see her daughters taking up the reins.

The composing of the viola octet is complete, but still to do: editing, a final mix & mastering & score preparation, prior to publication. There are times when I find these processes absorbing & rewarding & times when they frustrate the hell out of me!

                Keep warm...stay safe...much love to you all,
