    For me, each complex, profound thought peeled away its truth in a way that totally resonates with my own perspective of truth. This is impressive, it is wisdom and quickens my hope for like-minds actually being in the universe (I often wonder about those I share the planet with.) With gratitude, I enjoyed .... CayCay

    wow, this is SO succinct. Meanwhile, I nearly wrote a novel with the words!!! Way to do it, Susan

    Wow, Susan, it only took you nineteen words to use the eight required. I would say that is very frugal and pretty darn impressive. Best of luck. John
