Enjoy this wonderful review and interview with Fiona Joy Hawkins talking about her introspective album SENSUAL JOURNEYS; thanks to Robert Silverstein at MWE3 http://www.mwe3.com/reviews/Fiona2012/
A few months ago, I was riding up an elevator with a sad looking woman. I asked her if she was okay, and she said she and her husband were worried about their son in Iraq. I felt sorry for her, and reached in my pocket, handed her one of my CDs. She thanked me, and the elevator door opened and closed.
Today, I happened to see the same person in the office building today, and she remembered me. She reminded me that I had given her the CD months ago. She said, "I bet you don't know what I did with your CD. . . I sent it to my son in Iraq. You didn't know your music has gone overseas. It has entertained our service men and women in Iraq!" Her story touched me deeply.
Well, I never dreamed such a small act of kindness to a stranger could turn into a huge benefit, especially give a taste of home to our brave troops!
