    Complex thought indeed Kurt. We’re all in some way trying to piece together a dream that seem so unattainable and praying for a light at the end of the tunnel

      i like the image of a beautiful stained glass window that comes together to form a complex thought … the thought encompassing everything that’s meaningful … freeing us from all that doesn’t matter … wull … as always thank you so much for reading and writing … DEANNE! i want to hear another story! if the one i read about the man on the bench with the dogs is any indication of your ability, i think you should pursue that avenue of thought and expression. take care … i’m in a fallow period … again … traveling though … in seattle on my way to michigan …. where i’ll eventually have three weeks to myself along the shoreline of Lake Huron … take it easy. ks
