    1. ^True that.

      And 'ancient voices' have a certain echo in them. :)

  9. I listen to my ancestors voices al the time ... many of them were killed in WW2 or perished in somewhere in Siberia ... wrong colour of skin ... wrong accent ... wrong time in place ... I go to sleep every night, remembering them ... sending you a link of a lovely lullaby ... how are you, my friend? Love, cat. PS: Here is the link: www.youtube.com/embed/JIN7RphRieU?rel=0

  10. Both monks and birds, I think, are age-old listeners.
