    I did find it interesting that Erwin’s facebook page has a picture on top of the page which is clearly making a stance against the Putin government whilst his “wife” has been coming under fire for her association with Putin. Now we know…

    I’ve just seen the Callas documentary that Quanto posted on another thread and I am completely traumatized. What a gloriously fascinating yet unrelentingly tragic life journey that was!…So yeah after having seen that I do hope AN will be ok! :-P . She seems like a strong woman and the circumstances are different though so I’m not too worried… loneliness can be a killer, true, but at least she has her son and other family members…Maria had no one…coincidentally (or perhaps not) AN was actually born two days after Maria’s Death (though many years later obviously). Peculiar fact. Just thought I’d share.
