    I think, and I may be wrong that the mystery of life is somehow in the Author's mind. How many friends we might have made it's all a question of circumstance, the where and the when.It's like Dons No man is an island too. And another quotation, that an enemy is out there, turn him into a friend.

    When One Writes or Paints a picture...This comes from the HEART.
    If others choose to respond or view This...These reactions come from the SOUL.
    How One decides to *PERCEIVE IT ALL...IS entirely up to themselves.

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
