    The only trouble is that I had to keep rewinding to actually listen to the words, rather than just the rhythm.

    Yow! You’re getting some great responses! It’s been a while since I’ve been here.
    That last post was awesome. You voice is amazing.
    Don’t worry, Miette. Not all of the guys who are head over heels in love with you are crazy.
    Most of us are just rather lame and harmless.

    Go Obama.

    You suck; your voice is annoying and you read slower than a 1st grader

    Miette, I realize that some of the comments you have been receiving recently are less than polite, but take heart, only the great are ever criticized so heavily. just no that for every immature ingrate (look above for example) there are ten adoring fans whose world you light up when your voice hits the airwaves.

    Sorry for the spelling errors. I’m very tired.

    And you, “Micheal”, don’t seem to even know how to spell your own first name.

    Or how to appreciate genius when you see it in front of your face.

    Miette, whatever would we do without you? Just came over for the new story (though I listen almost every night anyway), saw the ripples over this way and am now listening to this story now. Beautiful, entrancing… Now I need to decide which one story I’ll listen to – the one I (was) listening to, or the one I’m hooked on now!

    Lovelies! I would have trashed Micheal’s comment if I really found it threatening or took offence. We’re all entitled to our opinions… just as we’re all entitled to choose which opinions to listen to.

    Clare, Jake, I quite like yours!

    xo and felix sit annus novus….

    Hi there. This is the same Denise who requested this story nearly 11 years ago. I came back, listened again, and cried again. It’s a beautiful story, beautifully read, and I am still so grateful for the time spent on this one story to get it right and give it its full justice. Very nice of you and it’s one of my most favorite treasures of the internet. I am glad to see you’re still at it. I’ve got a lot of catching up to do. Thank you kindly indeed.
