Elsie Stockdale, Nigel Kennedy, Facebook - and Me?

July 1, 2008 13:46

Well, well...with the proliferation of social networking websites in addition to the curious phenomenon of having the world "at one's fingertips" via the world wide web, I received a very beautiful note on my Facebook account from Elsie Stockdale of Weymouth, Nova Scotia, Canada. Ms. Stockdale is the "founder and editor" of Nigel Kennedy Online (also known as "elsie does nigel kennedy...the most unofficial- unauthorized- but-I'm-doing-it-anyway site online!"), which is one of the most comprehensive sites concerning the life and career of one of the greatest violinist and one of the most fascinating thinkers of our generation - yes, that would be Nigel Kennedy.

It has been a pleasure getting to know Ms. Stockdale and I highly encourage all of you to visit her site.
