Auralia Around the World!

Auralia’s Colors has been inspiring some interesting responses from readers. Today, I received a package today from Vicki, an Auralia’s Colors reader in Manila.

Vicki works in Manila, but she was reading Auralia’s Colors while traveling to a scientific conference in Taipei.

This is the second time she’s sent me an extravagant package. (She wrote in response to Through a Screen Darkly too.) What fun. It reminds me of receiving care packages from home after I moved from Portland to Seattle for college. Anyway, I’m bowled over by the latest, which included a book about the life of J.R.R. Tolkien, and some photos like these:

Auralia’s learned a few tricks from the lawn gnome in Amelie, I see.

Thanks, Vicki!
