YO Paul, you're quote about 'Tall Oaks from little Acorns grow' reminded me
of similiar saying in Hausa.
Good luck with your search for info re Graphic Scores :-) SOUNDS

on another note: great discuss / conference going on :-)

Sannu / Hello (in Hausa, one of 200 languages spoken in Nigeria)

It is from a small seed that the giant Iroko tree has its beginning.
An old banana leaf was once young and green.
It is little by little that a bird builds its nest
Our examples are like seeds on a windy day, they spread far and wide
When a palm-branch reaches its height, it gives way for a fresh one to grow.

Na gode / Thank You

Na tafi / I'm Going
Sai an jima / Good Bye

best regards, sylvi macCormac
