Hello MLK, To say I'm a "romantic master" makes me be blush, however, I shall take it, and try to be true to it!! (Keep in mind that I do write my share of "dark writes" too!! LOL!!) I will try to keep the writes coming. Best Wishes Always, Gary

Hello Lisa, Many Thanks for your read and gracious comments here!! I totally agree with what you've said. "Love" is, or at least should be, a center point of each person's life. I think our world needs more of it too!! Best Always, Gary

Hello Nette, Many Thanks for your read and note here. Since you did a contest on this format, you then know the mechanics and artistry involved getting everything just right. (This is the second Shadorma I've done thus far, but I plan to do more.) Carry On -- I shall!! Cheers and Best, Gary
