Thanks, Andrea. It's nice when you look back at some of your older stuff and still enjoy it (and that other people like it too). Kind regards!

Good Morning John. Just beautiful. I enjoyed how you incorporated the ocean and her tides. That was a wonderful poetic touch. Well done entirely. And congratulations also with your entry. If I haven't told you yet. You truly have mastered this style.
