Yet another connection revealed: My fairy godson Nominally Challenged regularly reads a blog by Lawrence Schimel. NC and I have known each other ever since he moved to Tel Aviv many years ago. During the course of that time, NC sang with a mixed choral group of Israeli Jews and Israeli Arabs called Voices for Peace. I mentioned to NC that my niece Ellen Kushner had a nationally syndicated radio show of folk/ethnic/world music, and she might want to play the Voices for Peace CD on the air. Even though Ellen lived in Boston at the time, I sent a copy of the CD to a friend in New York for delivery to Ellen, because I knew Ellen was planning to move to New York and I wanted them to meet, which they eventually did, but by that time I had forgotten about the CD and I suspect my NY friend did too.
In the meantime, NC moved on from music-making to other art forms, and Ellen and her partner Delia Sherman moved from Boston to New York. (I suppose I'll have to go back to New York to make sure my friend delivers that CD, so it seems my personal delivery service vacation may be cut short).
Anyhow, yesterday, NC reported to me that Lawrence had posted text and photo about his lunch with his friends Ellen and Delia in Madrid.
Conclusion: Readers, no matter where you go, the Blogosphere is watching you!
