Just got a note from Linford Detweiler of Over the Rhine:
Auralia was my traveling companion all across Europe and the UK. Wow. Congrats on bringing her to life. I came home and immediately began reading The Hobbit — wanted to stay in a world somewhat reminiscent of Auralia’s. So I’ll be taking Gandalf to the West Coast for old time’s sake. See you soon, Linford.
Kinda freaks me out to think that Auralia toured the UK with OTR. Wow. Life’s just full of surprises.
