sigh..so like a man to think only of how his pleasure will be marred..only "allowing" as much freedom to his "toy human/woman/plaything" as can be given and not distrub his pleasure! (grumble) Light & Love

I lke the image of the "junior Gods" losing their breath as they watch beautiful Urveshi dance. I see her love growing, even though it may be inspired only by his songs. People have fallen in love with singers since time began because their words and melodies touch our hearts. Very nice epic you are creating here! Love, carolyn
