      What was your favorite part of the performance? I loved the uniqueness of each artistic expression. The stories behind each project were told so effectively. What a beautiful opening Kathy offered, setting the stage for everyone else to show how they are dream creators. Betsy had me with "Have you seen my sister?.....really the interplay of theatrical storytelling and harping. Alexander's composition was utterly captivating and that she has published the music so others can enjoy playing it is a big bonus. The European videos were very engaging. Kudos to Janna and Catherine for offering their early efforts. Janna's (spelling?) video made me listen very carefully to the layers of meaning she was offereing with her spoken story and sometimes nearly inaudible musical track. Intriquing. adventures you are having. Nicole....stunningly brilliant....a joy to watch and listen....thanks for rewriting Christmas music. Summertime by Robbin was sultry and delicious. Loved your proclamation at the end ...."and I am a concert harpist!". YES. out for her wild and crazy alter ego. Thank you for your willingness to let your hair down. Very fun! Teddy....such a beautiful labyrinth you have created. Loved how the initial slide focused on the flower motif and the whole labyrinth was not revealed until well into your story. "My Life Flows On"....such a beautiful song and healng expression to be born from the schrapnel of a tragedy. Sally just rips with the portable electric. Wow to everyone, and hope I didn't leave anyone out. Oh! and loved Deborah's musical telling of the story behind the stories...artfully spinning these works in progress into a colourful tapestry of soul expression! Kudos everyone.
