    Thank you for hosting Veronica, and for the invite. You inspired me greatly and so I was/am so happy to participate here. Your choice of music and knowledge/meaning/intent of this piece is a joy. Such spirit it has for me. And the colours especially have me looking and looking and running my eye over the lines of the wolves. Just beautiful. Thanks! N, x

    The song of the wolves! It will always be there just like the spring. We have seen here in the Netherlands a wolf (on tv). Very special because this hasn’t been seen since a long time.
