Very sensual and real, Vilmos, especially your internal, mental processing that seems to happen even at the time.

Oh, yes, Vilmos. I listen to those all the time from the program you're referring to, and they tend to be very poignant and moving. Are you thinking of telling yours and seeing if it might be selected for broadcast? Do they have a link to listening to ones that have already been broadcast? If you go to http://www.npr.org you can listen from their archives to the ones that have been broadcast here. I know they come during the general timeframe of Morning Edition, but I'm not sure if that's the official "segment" where you need to go to locate them.

Hi Vilmos ~

When you're hearing something inspiring, poignant, touching, moving... which all of them are in one or another or several of those ways... time becomes altered, so I honestly don't know how long they are. My guess is between five and ten minutes, as the outside limits.

Hi Vilmos ~

Don't erase anything please. Your writing is honest and refreshing and clear by the way you non-approach it. You are just very clear where you are in the moment and are able to describe that state of being, with your observations and reactions.

Now, back to NPR. A friend of mine sent me some recordings of Dylan's radio program. I don't get it where I'm at, though [unless it's somehow accessible in the middle of the night]... however, it is on public radio, I believe. What is XM? I know there's some satellite radio thing that can bring you lots of different styles of music... ongoing. You have to pay for it, though.

Yes... NPR has a very human and warm quality. Even though some find it too far to the left, I've found it to be quite balanced, very surprizingly at times. Some times I don't care for how some of the presenters' style of talking. I recall a very chirpy news broadcaster as she delivered very devastating type news... as though she was oblivious to what she was reading. On another day, however, another woman was appropriately somber regarding deaths. This morning, I was irritated by the male interviewer who seemed to want to jolly along with the woman owner of a pub in the area of England that's very heavily flooded. I don't recall the name of the town, but the Thames is one of the two rivers that broke to make it now be an island. Her establishment is in the middle of town... the cellar is flooded and they're having water shipped in for drinking. They're taking in people who have nowhere to go. It's a small town and she credits their closeness and sense of community to the way they're rallying together now. He was speaking rather cheerfully about it all and she was maintaining, but was clearly not in a joking mood.

They're still in danger, if more rain comes or anything else goes. She finally assented that yes, she might put out a sign to the effect of, "We don't want your water." I just wanted to say to the guy, just because you're still able to make electronic contact with her, it doesn't mean she's in a joking mood. He seemed to be trying to push her into that space throughout the interview. The Brits are being credited for dealing with all of this very well, or at least 'keeping up appearances' of that. Still, in the context of his interview with her, I kept wanting to hear a sombre tone at least once. Just because people aren't dying doesn't mean they're not suffering. Property is being ruined, people are without electricity and drinking water, and sewage is finding its way into the mess. Could we save joking with the victims for a time when retrospect is possible? I considered writing to the station, which I've never done. Perhaps, since I've processed it here, I'll copy, edit, and send.

Generally speaking, however, NPR is sensitive to human and animal issues.

Hi Axel ~

I've not been able to help but notice that you feel as I do about Vilmos and his writing. I really appreciate it that you do and openly concur with what I've said here.

Thanks.
