    Silverfish are very slow readers. They want to digest every word.

    Good one, Don.

    FRESH

    The closest I have enjoyed anything of this rare clarity for quite a while Don.

    Only this comes to mind:

    'Through the lemon trees the diamonds of light, Break in splinters on the pages where I write..'

    - David Gray, 'Where The Flame Turns Blue'.

    With a grateful heart, again, I thank you all for your kindest words. It always makes me want more to record an experience in "tinywords."
