    The emphasis placed upon the pinnacle capability are the pinpoint inclinations that bring the meaning to life, it feels as if the reader steps into another realm, that of a creative motive formed from a childhood memory.
    Such a meaning brings youth and wisdom to the forefront by examining loss as a motive for existence.

    emphasis on judgement IMO. It is no one's place to look down upon another. Lighthearted, crafty, brilliant. (Report) Reply
