I can't help it...I MUST share it with you all.
« on: November 05, 2005, 09:42:07 PM »
This is a very trivial thing, but I live in the same block of a Russian Restaurant here in Buenos Aires (we have so much foreign communities among us ) and this night, the restaurant have a singing-traditional show night. They have a garden, and I can see it from my flat balcony...and I can "hear" it. This is the important think.

This night a Russian singer, sang the classics Russians "hits": "Kalinka", "Katyusha" , "It's snowing over Moscow" , "Black Eyes" and so on...

I went to the balcony with a wite wine glass and spent there some two hours, drinking and tears rolling down my cheecks. I thought about Nicholas, and Alexandra, and the children, and my beloved Russia.

It is really silly, but I really wanted to share this with you, for you are my virtual friends.  ;)

Ohh, how nice! I love Kalinka.  :)

They didn't do Podai Balalaiku, did they?

Don't worry RealAnastasia, that's part of life ;) you'll get lonely as you remember someone matters to you that has gone. Maybe if I was in your shoes I would also be sentimental.

Dear RealAnastasia,

You know that's not at all out of the norm. Many times I have listened to live and recorded russian music, and had the same sort of feelings as you. I think what's more important that you had the kindness to share your thoughts and convey it to us, whom understand you. It's of course very moving to hear another express themselves so openly and lovingly for a family whom went through such extraordianary issues and times.
Of course when it comes to remembering Russia, you cannot forget it, once you have been there. It also is an extraordianary country. Thank you so very much for sharing your sentiments. Good health, and God Bless !

One of my most deep wishes is to made a trip to Russia. I do not know exactly why, my mother and I are so much in love with Russia. In my case, long before I would know anything about NAOTMAA.

Thank you for your kind message, Tania. You are a very sweet person.

And thank you ,  Sarusha, Robby and Bluetoria. As for Reashka", no I was not lonely . All my beloved ones are near my, thanks God! It's only than Russian Music make me melancholic...Sweetly melancholic.

I've never been to Russia, but I hope to visit someday. I'll probably break down and start to cry in the street because I was thinking about OTMAA.

W are all reminded of the Romanovs in different ways, and of their tragic end. If you are truly devoted to the Romanovs you will find ways in which they trigger you to remember them frequently.
