A violent storm

    Extremely imaginative and evocative language, it really comes to life, as human beings we are forced with the realization that we have choices to make, these choices can frighten us but they can also liberate us and give us freedoms greater then anything in the animal kingdom, a desert is world in which life is premature, but their is always an oasis where pockets blossom, find those pockets and you may blossom yourself. The choice is yours (Report) Reply

    Desrt life is challenging and uncomfortable. However, one could find fulfilment in the desert if we commit our duties to mankind and God. May you find joy as you traverse in that desert attending to human needs (Report) Reply

    Quite a heart-versus-mind situation, I must say. Follow your heart, Ellen, but only when it is not self-destructive. (Report) Reply

Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
