Hi Tina. Thank you. It's me who's being inspired. Thanks for all the lovely comments. You're right about going with the flow. And every mountain counts - whether physical or metaphorical. x

Posted on Sun, 05 Oct 2014

I like this vision of a dark place. When I read out loud it feels more fluid without the "I commit" and the second "again" in the last line. Nice piece. Like it.
