I did get lots of mail,, wondering about my feelings,, well i was a bit depressed and a little angered,,, but all is good right,, got to read and close my sweet contest,, thanks for asking where was I? Wow! Harry. drowning in passion,, now where is it when I need it. Well i have drowned in my own misery... well i will continue to write till i snap out of it,, have a great day,, and point me to the river of life.. p.d.

    The deep abyss of life Harry, whilst we beckon to surface and live on the crest of a wave, only to fall periodically. Excellent Haiku >> James :)
