    This is great, it is intresting how we are provided these weak vessels as our interface with the world around us. Dispite there limitations they are a truly amazing gift. Imagine our joy when we receive our new perfect bodies. Another excellent poem.

    well seemingly insatiable indeed Annalise! And a tough partner for the soul to deal with at times. and indeed many times the spirit is willing but as our Lord says.. the flesh is weak. A nice double and thank you for your comments which are encouraging in a world which definetely is not.
