When I saw this picture I immediately thought of Harry Nillson and \”The Point\”. I was quite surprised to see that Jono had beaten me to it – you don't hear much of either Nillson or \”The Point\” these days. The quote I thought of though was \”A point in every direction is the same as no point at all\”. I loved this album and listened to it constantly when I first got it. I still have the album and a turntable, but alas they are both in storage so I haven't listened to it in years. Keera – this is a delightful album and well worth seeking it out to listen to the entire thing. I love \”Me and My Arrow.\”Ellen

Ellen, I listened to the whole album last night (I love streaming!). What a charming story with good songs! \”Me and My Arrow\” stood out for me, too. I was trying to tell a co-worker today about my delightful find, only to discover that \”The Point\” is an untranslatable pun. Where one word makes do in English, three are needed in Norwegian. I found myself unable to make my point.
