Mo Abersheid July 12, 2006 at 10:28 pm Reply Hi Alistair – How about doing a meditation course here in LA? I would imagine it would be very popular. timothy July 14, 2006 at 7:10 am Reply Hi Alistair! I was wondering if you know of the website Facebook.com. I admire your work a great deal, and i was wondering if any of my classmates did too, so I searched your name and your picture came up, saying that you went Bristol University. Not sure if it was really you, so i was just wonder . i applied to Bristol but did not get in! Take care! xoxo -tim george grimes July 15, 2006 at 11:22 pm Reply Hello Alistair, All your photo pages are excellent. An engaging kaleidoscope of colour and energy. Travel more, gg Jon J. Danzak July 17, 2006 at 5:38 am Reply Hi! Looked you up on the web out of curiosity; always enjoyed your presentations on TV. I noticed that you mentioned Durufle – check “Prelude and Fugure Sur la Nom Alain”. Jehan Alain, a friend of Maurice Durufle was killed in one of the World Wars. The piece musically states his name in the theme of the fugue and builds to a tragic finale. You can picture an idyllic youth, conflicting emotions going into war, and a sudden clash with death. Also I tripped across a W. H Auden reference you made. My favorite poem of his was “Citizen Unknown”. Great ending line: Was he free? Was he happy? The question is absurd: Had anything been wrong, we should certainly have heard. Hope you get to listen to the “Alain” piece. Also if you get a chance to listen to “Litanies” by Jehan Alain you may find it interesting.

What a beautiful way to simplify what I know inside to be true. If we could only see and then reach our potential the seed we were born to be could blossom and grow…. and once again Eden would flourish. Its all in the mind you know. Trish August 14, 2006 at 4:50 pm Reply Ive just started reading about meditation, I could do with some peace and tranquility in my life! Ive been slowly working my way through your essays here and theyre full of inspiration, thank you! Paul August 18, 2006 at 4:27 am Reply Alistair: A terrific surprise to find your blog! Five stars. I will be following. I like your mindset. Just saw a “Midsommer Murders” (A&E) mystery on DVD with Stephen Moyer. Are you related. There is a strong rssemblance. You are more handsome and charming, of course. Goes without saying, but I had to say it anyway. Cheers, Paul Tricia Matthews January 10, 2007 at 9:52 pm Reply Hi Alistair, what a nice surprise to google your name and find a staircase of interesting steps associated with Alistair Appleton. Here I am thinking that you’re always looking for “Cash in the Attic”. BBC America limits us to just that one show. I’m excited that you’ve visited Brazil. I’m from Guyana, so when you’re ready to see beautiful water falls and the lush interiors that surround them, make the trip. Despite the poverty, it is a beautiful country with equally beautiful people. Thanks for sharing the georgouse and vibrant pictures of your travels. I look forward to climbing those steps and finding out more about you. Best wishes Tricia Leave a Reply Cancel Notify me of follow-up comments by email. Notify me of new posts by email.
