  1. To the ladies who sang “Sailing for Gold” on the number 210 bus to Portland, earlier, I would just like to say a big “THANK YOU”, it was really nice to hear your singing, it made my day. Thanks again.

  2. You’ve made a young Greek musician happier.. Sitting on his couch, he holds his breath and his tear, he travels with his entire mind and soul to the places you draw.. His only wish is to experience and feel this melody live very soon, that’s a promise.. Thanks, honestly. Thomas
