Auld Lang Syne

Perhaps it's because these are the closing days of the year, or perhaps it's because i had a wonderful Christmas and am feeling very sentimental; whatever the reason, a few moments ago i visited the site at: http://ysarts.blogspot.com and my heart swelled up with emotion.
"What set of circumstances could cause that?" you ask.

There's an extremely well-done mural board on the right side of the blog and just below this is located a "snips" player playing an exceptionally well-done version of the sentimental song: Auld Lang Syne. As the mural board pictures tastefully fade, one into another, of local artist's works (all are noteworthy) the music fills your heart with a certain sense of awe.

Normally, i'm not an advocate of music playing on websites, blogs, etc. Generally, i think they're tacky.

However, i believe Jafabrit at the Yellow Springs Arts Council (and the address is worth repeating: http://ysarts.blogspot.com )will have me as a repeat visitor many times just to hear the music and watch the mural.

Well done
Chae

I enjoyed your site tremendously. It's a visual joy and Auld Lang Syne is a favorite tune.
And, just as you have stated, Lance Rudegeair's Christmas card is truly awesome. I am so tickled you have shared it with us!
Have the Happiest New Year !!!
