  3. i have this on vinyl deep in storage and had forgotten about it. love this record. sometime between '06 and '08, i was on her mailing list and communicated with her via email. then she went to either afganistan or pakistan, i can't remember at the moment, after a massive earthquake to volunteer. she expressed concerns about the taliban etc, then completely stopped communicating. just did a search and am glad to find that she returned safely. thanks for posting this.
