    Dearst sisters, thank you all so much for such warm and kind comments. It touches my heart deeply and encourages for further work. In fact, there is a full recording of this dance. Our dear brother Shahnawaz from Holland, a professional film producer, has made a full recording of this piece including the introduction. Unfortunately, it is too large to post on this site. Maybe it can be shown on another occasion.

    Oh goodness, the full recording teaches us so much, the foundation story of Abraham and Sarah, and encourages us how the heart knows/shows what the tongue cannot, and the mastery of the artists, an inspiration to all who hope to express their thoughts and feelings with integrity. Sincere thanks.
