did you get her permission to post her photo with your son, and share personal letters on your log for all to see?
9 Feb 2006 @ 10:10 by jstarrs : Alone in Spain Or....
..wasn't a song by Love.
There were still concierges at that time though, reminding us of the rules from dark stairwells, waiting to pounce, because their lives would be so empty otherwise.
9 Feb 2006 @ 16:41 by Quinty @22.214.171.124 : That was very nice
And you have to go to Spain too!
Fly to Madrid, visit Toledo, el Escorial, Segovia, Avila: take the train south, to Cordoba, Sevilla, or Granada. Or go further north to Pamplona and the Basque regions. Or, to get your feet wet, fly to Paris for ten or twelve days. If such a trip could be found boring I would say that person is no longer alive.

tell her to write me and I'll show her Oviedo (my city) :-). It's about 3.30h driving from Pamplona. Link
Alone in Spain... well, I hope that nobody feels alone here, as we're very friendly people! ;-)

All life changes. Love never dies no matter the choices made.
I am happy for your family able to soak in the joyous beauty of love.

Well Paul, I'd love to travel Europe---as would Jeroch---and hopefully we shall, when we're finished funding all these tax cuts, the results of which I don't seem to find in my bank account at all. Right now the corporate globalizers need me. I understand that by 2007, I'll need a passport to travel to our beloved Canada. Can't be too careful ya know...and of course another neat fundraiser. Check on the price of a passport lately?
Dear Silvia, I shall send Karen your invitation...and you a copy. I want her to know how much I think of you. If she outruns the bulls, I'm sure she'll try to come.
In fact, it looks like love WON'T die, even if you try to kill it!
9 Feb 2006 @ 22:09 by silviamar : wonderful!!
I'll enjoy very much meeting her and showing her my beloved city and its surroundings. If the weather is nice I'll also take her up to mount Naranco, the beautiful place whose pic I show in my NCN profile :-)

In four years time I'll be back living in the south of France - so if you do visit europe then you'll be most welcome chez nous !!!

I've been thinking about the first comment in this thread, and also have received a few emails about it. I've always written personally at this Log since I set it up some years ago. I believe the Internet, this site, and the world call for as much openness as there can be. But both Nora and I know the world is a more dangerous place now, and I think she is cautioning me in this way. I appreciate that. Let it also be remembered that Vibrani has been taking on all comers up at Ming's Blog for the past week in the Cartoon Wars. She knows how suddenly thousands of folks can descend upon a public log.
Also, once before I put up an article about a very dear and old friend at jazzoLOG, and everything was fine until it actually was seen and commented on---and then that friend telephoned an urgent appeal to take it down. Which I did. Sometimes sharing looks different when you're staring yourself in the face online. My wife certainly feels that way...and was startled recently to see a picture of herself in a brochure that came from an article I wrote here. Fortunately it was a good one, and I didn't get yelled at.
I've written to Karen twice since this entry went up, most recently to convey Silvia's greetings and invitation. If she's worried, I'll either edit or take it down.

Yes, it's a strange tightrope we walk when blogging. On one hand, we're in the intimacy of NCN and on the other hand, we're public and anyone can access our words with a random click of a search engine.
In any case, the photo attracts instant good wishes just by the light of such smiles. May the warmth radiating your way reach them!

thanks for considering my question, as you do know what can happen. Of course it's between you and your son's friend - maybe the whole family - to decide if it's cool to put it up here. I'm sure she would be flattered to be so welcomed and talked about so kindly. If I were in her shoes, I would want to know and be asked before it hit the internet. She might not be as cautious, or she might be thrilled. The two sure do look happy together.

I was surprised to notice this morning I hadn't made reference to Jeff's comment yesterday. I thought I had...but I know why I didn't. It inspired a reverie, which as you'll discover in later years, often takes precedence over reality. (Or if you're a Republican.)
What I was remembering were the dormmothers back in college days, which served the same function as the concierge...and then some. I think boarding schools and universities still employ people for this. The lady in the dorm where Quinty and I lived (John Bertram Hall...or JB for short) had her own apartment, whose door was open during the day. You didn't want to wake her at night---except for an emergency. She even darned socks! Yes folks, at one time Americans tried to fix things rather than just throw them away. Her main duty of course was to protect the school property and make sure no girls ever were in our rooms. At the girls dorms there was a sitting room where boys could be briefly visited. There the dormmothers, it is said, enforced the rule at Bates that a phonebook should always be placed between a boy and a girl sitting together on a sofa. You get the idea.
10 Feb 2006 @ 21:00 by Quinty @126.96.36.199 : Ah, yes
I can remember all that. And how unwelcoming the atmosphere could be. Maybe I needed a haircut.
By the way, have you caught up on the news today?
If there is anyone left who believes a word Bush says it only goes to prove the power of blind faith over reason. But then it's been at that point for a very long time.
