…and of course such a special birthday needs to be celebrated properly. There is a wonderful podcast with all kinds of news and birthday wishes and an awesome collection consisting of 77 stories, poems, fairy tales and many more in various languages.

500. LibriVox recording!!!
It took me almost exactly 9 months to record 100 sections. My 500. section is a short poem for the fortnightly poetry collection. The poem is rather sad, but also very beautiful and it is called “Are The Children at Home?” by Margaret Elizabeth Sangster. Here is my recording of it and also the first paragraph of the poem:
Each day, when the glow of sunset
Fades in the western sky,
And the wee ones, tired of playing,
Go tripping lightly by,
I steal away from my husband,
Asleep in his easy-chair,
And watch from the open door-way
Their faces fresh and fair.
