    The story gives me joy, Jan. I love the image of the bird, and the honor of the young man. Thank you.

    FOR ALL I TRIED’ I WAS UNABLE TO GET THE VOLUME HIGH ENOUGH TO HEAR THIS STORY WELL.
    ALL MY SPEAKERS WERE AT THEIR MAX AND YET I COULD BARELY HEAR IT.
    WOE IS MOI!

    • My regrets. I’ve tested the sound both on the site directly and in iTunes and it comes through good and clear. Have you tried any of the other stories? I’d be grateful if you would and then let me know the results.
