|People in different countries celebrate Mother's Day on different
days of the year because the day has a number of different origins. One
school of thought claims this day emerged from a custom of mother
worship in ancient Greece. Mother worship — which kept a festival to
Cybele, a great mother of gods and the wife of Cronus; was held around
the Vernal Equinox around Asia Minor and eventually in Rome itself from
the Ides of March (March 15 to March 18). The Romans also had another
holiday, Matronalia, that was dedicated to Juno, though mothers were
usually given gifts on this day.|

|Queen's day, April 30, 2007|
written by Cynthia Fridsma
day always starts on April 30 in the Netherlands and it's a nation wide
celebration. It's a day of joy, games, music, dance etc. On April 30
all Dutch people go 'nuts' and celebrate the birthday of Queen Beatrix,
though it's not really her birthday because it's her mother's, the late
dutch Queen Juliana. |

appears to be in the habitable zone of space surrounding the star,
where the surface temperatures of any planets present might maintain
liquid water and therefore be suitable for life as we know it. The
planet is relatively close, at 20.5 light years (193.9 trillion
kilometers) from Earth in the constellation of Libra. Its star is
identified as Gliese 581 by its number in the Gliese Catalogue of
581 c may be the first discovered extra solar planet similar in
temperature to Earth. It is the smallest extra solar planet around a
main sequence star discovered to date.|

Message from Heather - March 28th, 2007
greetings from the trade winds in the caribbean where i am at the moment.
just went to buenos aires to shoot a video with ATB for the upcoming single, renegade which i wrote with andre.
always good to stretch my wings in another direction from time to time. a step outside of my own realm.
i enjoy the challenge and the change. i have written 3 songs with him: renegade, stars come out and made of glass all of which will be on his upcoming album, "trilogy".
it was all done long distance - he sent me some backing tracks over
the internet, we skyped a bit, and i wrote and recorded over the top.
germany - bermuda. it's great to live in these times.
then he persuaded me to fly to buenos aires to make the video. i
don't like long flights, but had never been there and was curious...
doing a lot of painting lately in between working on songs and
looking after a very energetic 3 year old. there are periods in my life
when i feel a strong calling and need to drop everything to follow it.
writing the sorrowjoy was like that. i felt compelled to sit
down and write that collection of poems within a period of 3 months. a
very intense focused time. then of course there are long periods of
unfocused time too!
i am currently looking into ways to distribute my records independently in the USA...... so stay tuned.
perhaps a couple of gigs here and there, but i am putting my energy
into writing and recording some more music at the moment, so no major
tours till later...
meanwhile, thank you for your letters and kind support.
i hope to bring you some more music soon.
ps. just read a great book, if anyone out there is looking for something to read. it's called don't lets go to the dogs tonight by alexandra fuller

|2nd Heather Nova Profile on MySpace up in smoke :-(|
Mar 14, 2007 3:42 AM
Today I discovered that the 2nd heather nova profile is gone which is
just too bad (I think) because it's always nice to know that there are
people out there who like Heather's music.
Anyway, the Heather Nova Online Magazine still exists and will remain
on the net as long as I live (and I hope that this will be a very long
For those of you who think that I had anything to do with the 2nd HN
profile: no, I didn't have to do anything with it but I love to support
every initiative which is why I put the 2nd profile on our Heather Nova
Online Magazine but now there is no point in keeping it here since the profile on MySpace is up in smoke :-(
Just too bad for the Heather Nova fan that things didn't work out and
some people also abused the profile with stupid spam which ain’t very nice.
I would like to say to the fan who was behind the 2nd Heather Nova
profile on MySpace the following words: “You can contact me if you want
to support Heather because I am more than willing to give you your own
homepage on our Heather Nova Online Magazine, free of charge! And a
homepage on our website is more than only a blog page! You can also
have your own column on our main site if you want so don't let your
head down and contact me by email. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.”
All the best,

Dollmaker, written by Amanda Stevens, keeps you awake because this
suspense thriller will mesmerize you until the very end because Amanda
has the talent to make the reader a part of her story as a silent
witness and when Claire saw the doll of Ruby in the display window
surely gave me the goose bumps and I almost could see the scene in my
imagination like a movie playing in my head.

Written by Cynthia Fridsma
I've been searching a long time to make our Heather Nova Online
Magazine more accessible for people with dyslexics, people with
learning disabilities, people with English as a second language,
elderly with impaired vision etc.

Subject: feldkirch, 31.7.
hi, it was my second concert after Munich last year. At Munich i stood
very close before the stage and i was wondering whether i should close
eyes so that i can concentrate on and flow with the music or watching this
angel singing. At Munich first track was she alone with Storm, then the
band set in with Heart and shoulder and then Motherland. I thought i
was in heaven at last, finally, i literally had to keep from crying
joy. At Feldkirch, in my home country, though i had to travel even more, i
live close to Vienna, first track was Maybe an angel, and then the same
two and three and again i was home. Music was as powerful and
spiritualized and uplifting and deep as the year before but she was more
opened, she smiled several times and spoke a little, which she didnt do
at Munich at all. Cant tell that one was better than the other but i
can tell that im looking extremely forward to her next live performance
because thats real power and real love.
And theres something remaining inside your heart that will help you going through the storm.
love, regards, gerhard

||Re: feldkirch, 31.7.
Thanks for sharing your review about Heather's concerts in Munich and at
Feldkirch... I will publish your review on the site today because I am sure
that other fans will love your review too, as much as I did!
And I can understand why it's hard to say which one was better, because Heather
is simply the best and when she's on stage she gives 100% of her self to the
audience, I am quite sure of that which is why there's so much love in the air
during a nova concert, like you mentioned before.
Your review reminds me of the good times I saw Heather on stage and I am sure
that she'll be back on stage next year and than we'll have a chance to see her
again on stage.
What's your favorite HN song? The song I like most is Island (because it's a
strong and emotional song of Heather, though almost all her songs are that
