As I was just saying to myself today, this broken right shoulder never will be quite the same, but my left one is getting quite a workout it never had before. Good one, congrats.

In a few effective words, you have expressed a truth about grief and the pain of losing a loved one whether through a failed relationship or by death! Since I recently lost my beloved mother, the pain is still very sharp. Have a wonderful day, my friend! Pandita

Good Afternoon John. You have described grief. The Lanterne is in true form. And yes, your words are so true. I"m a believer that time does not heal and that the grief and loss heightens. Wonderful work entirely. Best of luck with the contest.

Thank you for your comments. I have to believe that the pain will diminish, at least slightly, but am aware it will never disappear completely. Regards, John.
