This is a perfect pairing, Eija's sculpture and Leonard's song.

Eija ~ Your ice creation this year reminds me of the globe that Leonard is traveling and changing the shape of the world ever so slightly and gently with his performances. It also appears to have cracks the world over as the light gets in everywhere when Leonard is near.

It's beautiful. Well done.

It's fitting to hear Leonard at Christmas. Thank you for your thoughtfulness, Jarkko... and thank you for the care and beauty of your work, Eija... and for sharing it with us as you do.

Thank you! I'd never heard this before, and it's perfect for a morning with a foot of new snow on the ground.
