a song for my kin  
Dear friends,

Today is my birthday, and the hobbits, as you may know, have a tradition to make presents to their friends and kin on such occasion. We're not hobbits but mere men, yet, isn't the idea ingenious?

Besides, it's a chance for me to come over to your place for a cup of tea... if you have a PC and a fast internet connection, of course - there is ever this "if", and ever the limitations. But I'm working on them :)

And this is, indeed, what the song is about.

It is called "Walls", it was written by Tom Petty and performed by him beautufully and recorded on his album from 1995 called "She's The One" (it's a movie soundtrack, in fact).

This song means a lot to me, and I hope that it comes across.

It is a home recording we made with Genia Gluhov, an old friend of mine, about a month ago, for the fun that's in it (as they used to say in Limerick).
Genia plays the guitar and bass, I sing and shake the plastic bottle filled with salt :)

This is the LINK to download the song

Ah, walls... that is my favourite issue.
Walls is something you bump into - when you want to get to places,
and when you want to get to people.

This song for me is a place I'm going to, and the people I miss.
I'm not there yet... but I hope and believe I will be one day,
and there I'll find everyone who I deem to have lost.

see you around ;)

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday dear friend!

What can I say? Downloaded your song and it bought tears to my eyes. Tears of joy of course :-)

You have a beautiful voice as well as being an excellent salt shaker;-)

I hope you have a great day, you deserve too!

And remember:

We all know success when we all find our own dreams,
And our love is enough to knock down any walls,
And the future's been seen as men try to realize,
The simple secret of the note in us all.
