with Christmas so near i harken back to those times shared... the time shared thruout my life with so many...at my age this is acceptable...and altho i look forward to the excitement of Christmas to come...i just as easily look back to warm myself with memories of the recent and distant past

i think in my 10 + years of being online i have discovered a place laden with people i haven't ever met in person...may have met in person...and hoped to meet in person...because they became as the song say "family"

the singer here was brought to my attention a few years ago by a little Disc Jockey in the Arctic Circle...she was a beautiful human being awaiting a heart transplant...it was a Christmas joy to meet her even tho it was online...she was from the Inuit tribe as is the singer..Susan Aglukark...most of Susan's singing is in her native Inuit tongue

may each and every one of my new online acquaintances here be blest at Christmas and enjoy blessings in the New Year...Darshan Nan

O Siem

We are all family

O Siem

We're all the same

O Siem

The fires of freedom

Dance in the burning flame

Siem o siyeya

All people richa and poor

Siem o siyeya

Those who do and do not know

Siem o siyeya

Take the hand of one close by

Siem o siyeya

Of those who know because they try

And watch the walls come tumbling down

O Siem

We are all family

O Siem

We're all the same

O Siem

The fires of freedom

Dance in the burning flame

Siem o siyeya

All people of the world

Siem o siyeya

It's time to make the turn

Siem o siyeya

A chance to share your heart

Siem o siyeya

To make a brand new start

And watch the walls come tumbling down

O Siem

We are all family

O Siem

We're all the same

O Siem

The fires of freedom

Dance in the burning flame

don't hesitate to listen to the other beautiful songs Inuit and otherwise on this U Tube...i'm sure in his workshop there Santa does...hahahahahahaha ;-D
