    I think, for a variety of random reasons, this was the perfect random selection for right now. I’ve really liked listening to you read and this one was especially good.

    I enjoyed this story. The 2 (actually 3) people came through so clearly. I also particularly enjoyed another story called, I think, “Mr. Andrews.” Do you ever tell short stories of Isak Dinesin?
    Your voice has a nice intrigue about it. Sometimes, for me, it brings life to a story that might need it. I really appreciate the service to all of us your stories bring–a nice snippet of relief and distraction at the end of what can be an exhausting day.
    Tell you the truth, the dog sometimes drives me nuts, altho it may be part of your mystique (“Love me enough to pay for it thru hearing the story thru all the dog yaps”).

    I’d love to hear stories with an exotic, magical, and puzzling twist to them. Maybe something from Jelal-uddin-Rumi.

    I looked on the Internet to see a photo of you, but of course (how silly of me), there was none.

    Thank you for the fun and intrigue of your podcast! Diane C.

    Hi Diane,

    You might have read my mind. I love Dinesen and plan to read something from Winter’s Tales soon. Stay tooned.

    And my dog drives me nuts sometimes too. So rather than enhancing the mystique, perhaps the dog’s just bringing us all closer together?

    Thanks for listnin’.

    Hello, Miette;
    What a delightful way to end an evening–listening to your voice–lingering so respectively over the language and words of this story. I saw this dramatized in 1978 on BBC TV and never forgot those two people so lonely and looking for solace and understanding. Each chained to narcissistic and non-kind spouses. You communciated this theme impeccably. Thank you!
