  2. A lot in this one - it works very well - made me stop and think, and very rich metaphors: it creates real tension in me too - awaiting that touch...

  17. I am looking at the picture, reflecting on your words and trying to bring the two together. Are you tangled in a quagmire of silent words that refuse to be born? I hope that touch comes soon, but suspect that it has already come to pass.
