    Hello Sandra & Bill,

    I trust this finds you well. AS for these videos, I can’t get them to play. And I’m sorry to say I’m not too sorry. Of course I know that the Rubaiyat has inspired some very odd things over the past century and a half, but this one might just be the oddest.

    Best regards.

      Hi David. It’s good to hear from you. The link to the videos works OK for us – I have just tried it again. If any one else has a problem with the link, please post a comment. As regards the content, the Rubaiyat has inspired many very varied interpretations and I guess we all focus on the ones that work for us. There are more than enough to keep us all happy, we think.
      Best, S&B
