You're right. I as literallay translating, which is silly. Bear in mind it was early in the morning--grin. e equals mc squared is the way I would write it out, I'm thinking in brackets next to the equation as written, but maybe I should not replace the equation as written with the words. Yours is the first letter I'm reading this afternoon, so I'll see what others say as to sing the equation itself at all. Cindy P.S. I tried to write about the music in Glatea--I kow the first key is c major, and when I tried to write the chords and notes it became very awkward; I was putting down not only the notes but whether they were quarter notes, eighth notes, etc. What has your musician friend said? (Bill or Brian--I forgot). --- Amy Goldring Tajalli <agoldringtajalli@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> wrote: > Hi, Cindy, > > When you get an answer, please let me know.
