From Väinämöinen to Gerry to Me!

I received a most wonderful gift today, an amazing, a mythical gift -- the pikebone kantele from my friend Gerry Henkel. Words, for once, escape me because I am brimming with gratitude and amazement. And sorrow -- despite the many stickers warning FRAGILE, it was damaged on its journey from Minnesota. I can only hope, that like the body of Lemminkainen (as Diane so wisely suggests) it can be made whole once more.

Kiitos paljon, Gerry. Kiitoksia!

And meanwhile, back in Houston, my other new harp arrived. Her name is Lirazel and she's pictured there in front of Ceili so you can see just how wee and elfin she is.
