Myron's gift to Birgitta
I was reminded of the time when two beautiful Afghan dogs came and laid their heads on my lap while I was singing for friends and their pets some years ago. Also on Mt. Shasta, California, when I sang a song for people seated in a circle in a lodge with doors open to the forest. While singing with my eyes closed, I felt a furry creature jump on my lap and begin to purr. As soon as I finished, the creature quickly left and as I opened my eyes I glimpsed a bobcat exiting the building! Everyone in the lodge circle was silent, slack-jawed and wide-eyed at that unexpected event. My San Ildefonso hosts laughed when they heard that tale. They know about such things!
Before leaving the house, Myron went into his mother's kitchen and brought out a gift for me to take to Birgitta. Yum!
On 31 January, after reading this post, Birgitta reminded me of the time when I came to Sweden to propose to her in April 1993. During a visit to her friends I sang a Russian folk song. Again I sang with my eyes closed and she said their Doberman Pincer came over to me and put its head in my lap looking up at me until I finished singing.
