    Now...! that's really made it an "epic" Nancy,, i find this theme to be most diametrically comparable to the many opposite choices available in the world of Literature.. And therefore confer upon you my highest accolade,,, namely (Grand exponent of de-facto realism ) in the furtherance of the freedom of artistic expontentialism.. as appreciated "most of all by me" your Joe..!
