A plan to award Moya - properly! **MOYA KEEP YOUR NOSE OUT!!

Postby Grania » Thu Feb 17, 2005 4:58 pm

Hi there everyone!

A few people on the forum have been discussing (to some degree) the possibility of us fans of Moya Brennan finding a way to honour her and her music, and say a proper thank you to her for all she has given us. Considering the apparent enthusiasm for this idea, I thought I would create this topic for us to talk about it further. Please feel free to put forward ideas, develop plans, or anything else that would contribute. Also give your opinion - we all support Moya after all!! :D

Many Thanks - Grania

I like that idea Grania, though I am sure we have already given her her biggest reward by showing our support. But if we can think of something else I am up for it.

Hey Grania,

great idea! :D :D Moya deserves it, because she didn't win the Grammy. But her music is really really great! It's difficult to describe it, but Moya is the number one for me forever.

Yes, it would be nice to award Moya somehow, but since she is known to read these pages, it may be a better idea to make the awarding so that it would be a surprise to Moya! Just a thought... Maybe something similar than the Enya Forummers have done together?

Wellll......

As a programmer, I've been working on a program in my spare time that does just that in the Help About window!

Unfortunately, it's not a program I can make generally available because of the nature of what it does ... in untrained or wrong hands it could be bad news. However, it is available to certain computing forums and is fairly popular.

It might be some kind of "A Book of Days" (made for Enya in 2001) which contained fan profiles as well as their poems for Enya's song titles, or it can also be a huge card with lots of little fan cards included to inside. We have only the imagination as a limit here!!

Hey Suvi,

what do you mean exactly? :?: :?: I've not understood it yet...but it's a VERY great idea to tell Moya that she's the number ONE for us! :D :D :D :D

It would be a great idea indeed! Moya deserves something like an award, something that is ment even more seriously than usual ones. :D

We could make her a flag with prints on it from everyone. Or just one big inscription or something.

Maybe we could tell something about our countries/ourselves in general and compile that into one large thing? We could then include our drawings, poems, whatever to it as well!

Just for your information, Book of Days was made to Enya when she turned 40 in 2001, it was an officially/professionally printed and bound book with a rose drawing from everyone as well as a short "fan profile" and poems inspired by the songs/song titles of Enya's music.

As I am a maintainer of a worldwide fan club as well (though not to Enya/Clannad/Moya :) ), I have led through 5 fan card projects for Christmases so far. This has worked so that the fans have had a certain period of time in order to send their greeting cards to me, and once this deadline has ended, then I have compiled all the small cards inside to a bigger "cover card" made by myself and sent that thing to the receivers.

Anyway, we need to find a way that enables as many fans to participate as possible, so the final project should allow people to send in cards, poems, drawings, and such things, not just one type of things IMHO...

Suvi, that is a really good idea!

Perhaps we could incorporate nessie's 'yearbook' idea into it as well, and have photographs of ourselves etc :D Someone could perhaps write a letter to Moya to go with it - then we can all leave a personal message, and one or two other things as suggested etc - doesn't have to be any limit on what we do after all!! :D :D :D

Keep the ideas coming people! :D
