"To me, music that breaks your heart is the music that stays with you forever. It's one thing to be melancholy and one thing to be sophisticated, but when you get the two of them together in a way people can relate to, then I think you're on to something. You want the sophistication to lie in the purity of the sound, the beauty of the arrangements, and the quality of the performances."-Trumpeter Chris Botti

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Picture Descriptions


Hi everyone!

I'm here to "sing in the choir", (smile).

I have to say I love those picture descriptions to as others do. It's not an easy thing to do, I have heard people say, and the volunteers who have the eyes to see pictures painstakingly give such vivid descriptions that I feel like I'm there with the characters when I read them. They are real gems in these books that wouldn't be nearly as rich without them.

When I was in school, the word "omitted" in my braille book became a "dirty word" to me, because I always wondered what I was missing by the omission, though I understood that it was not technically possible to include whatever it was that had to be omitted.
