Oh wow - we're on the same wavelength, aren't we? It sounds like St. Lucy was excellent inspiration for you. Fascinating stuff! :)

Yes I agree, this was especially moving for me today. Aren't I the angsty one, lately? LOL

Thanks for posting that ((((EH))))

I'm so glad you found it moving, too -- sometimes angst can be a good thing! *hugs*
