Hi Paul, an excellent Cinguain from a golden pen. Your words paint a wonderful canvas in the mind. In so few words you encapsulate the vision. I wish i had you skill in doing so. Very belated congratulations on your trophy win. Your words shall always sing in the mind. Have a wonderful Thursday Paul. Your friend always....Mike.
