    OMG, Mr. Nate DiMeo…….your “stuff” is just too much; I’ve never heard so much beauty. Thank you for sharing what’s in your head………..I was, by the way, at the Seattle Radiotopia. Had just head your Florence Chadwick spoken word about 2 weeks before. The graphics you had to go with it were BRILLIANT! (both smart AND shining!). Anyway thanks for all of it………………

  2. Eric Englebetson says:

    I (without even warning myself) sort of scream/laugh/barked when I heard the last words of this episode. This was beautiful and wonderful, and – it won’t happen soon – but so help me *God*, I will get out to Gallery 719.

  3. Thanks for taking me somewhere wonderful today with this episode. It made think of the past, the present and the future with a little more twinkle and magic.

  4. Kelli D. says:

    This was one of my favorite episodes yet (and I’ve listened for a good while. The sensory imagery was so vivid, and what a charming, heartwarming way to end the episode. Just perfect. Now I want to visit a room I would have otherwise had absolutely no interest in.

  5. Jess Brooks says:

    Brilliant! A museum guard pointed me to this gallery this morning, and had a little smile on her face as she did it. My guess is you’ve made her days brighter with these last lines, as you did mine. Thank you!
