bright sky darkening betrayal by subterfuge ... cruel aftermath 11/5/2022 When betrayal from those you trust is combined with calculated deceit, the aftermath can be most cruel.

Oh, that wipes our feet right put from under us and I feel all at sea, nothing to cling onto. Hunker up until the rain stops falling and warm up in the sun. Elizabeth
