Amazon Chat for Loreena

I didn't get a chance to express my full happiness in actually participating in a live chat. I would like to bore you, I mean share with you the start of that wonderful evening, on Tuesday, March 17th. First, I told everyone who would listen that exactly 9:00 pm on Tuesday, March 17, that I would be listening to Loreena McKennitt, live on my computer. So I came home from work, called all my friends and family so that there would be no interruptions between 9:00 pm to 9:30 pm. I had my dinner, and watched Countdown on MSNBC. Then on a commercial logged into the Loreena's site. I was nervous, because I have never done this and was a little afraid something would prevent me from getting on. But it didn't. I got onto the site, and saw that about 50 people were already on, chatting away. So I joined the group. It was sweet, because you could create your name and use smiley faces in your messages. I sent a message "Hello From New York". And it was nice to find there were others who were in my area. "Five minutes in counting", people wrote. I wrote a message that said "I have to go get my tea." "Two minutes in counting.", someone wrote. What was I going to ask her? "One minute to go" someone wrote. "Oh my God!" And then Loreena's picture showed up on the left side of the screen. I clicked the play button, and Loreena began to speak. I did mention in an earlier blog, that her picture was like a moving mosiac. But nevertheless it was magnificient. I have to say it was quite an experience, listening and typing at the same time, as I was trying to get all my questions in. There were many good questions. So I have learned that Loreena has dogs, she was involved in sports growing up, she currently runs, even before sound check, and she listens to classical music in the morning. I also understand she likes The Chieftains. I think the next time I'm going to take notes, because I was too involved in the chatting part of it that I couldn't remember all that was said.

These are the questions I asked her.
1) Do you speak a little Gaelic
2) Which modern artist or artists would you collaborate with, in addition to your band? Let this be a far out question so that it can be seen only as in a dream.

So I sighed, as the the program drew to a close. The time flew of course because I was having so much fun! But I was even more happier when I saw on the Quinlanroad newsletter that Loreena had done a short talk on her music background and such for Barnes & Noble. That was a nice closing. Thank you all %1,000 percent!

What a lovely reading! You have managed to recreate the anxiety and excitement of that night! Smiler To me too the wait was exciting, despite the time Roll Eyes.

However, if it can help, as to your first question, I know that she'd like to find a bit of time so that she can learn Gaelic, but I think she can't speak it at the moment, maybe she knows a few words, expressions.
Till next chat!
