FROM THE EDITOR
We were late with the first two issues of this year, then with
the fall issue we somehow caught up, but we are really early with the
Christmas issue. As you read these lines I am in Slovakia preparing my
second photo exhibit of this year. It will open in Bojnice on December 8,
during the 10th anniversary of the Christmas Carols Festival of
Christians of Slovakia under title: "God bless all this country and
the people in-Slovak Heritage III." I am really exited about the
exhibit, as several years of my work will be on display. I discovered the
magic of this festival in 1993. Those who are getting our newsletter for a
long time, may remember the write ups on several festivals by Mária
Rybárová from Bojnice. I am happy to say that Mária Rybárová
successfully completed her University in Nitra and now continues to study
English in Sydney, Australia....
