Nice. I like the thought of drying wings. Makes her seem like an angel on her day off almost.

Sounds relaxing, I must admit! Think I'll try this..

Hey....this was good! Paints the picture...and leaves many ways to interpret. That's a lot of work for nine words! Vb

Thanks, Laurie!

Thank you, Christine! I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it! Yesterday I listened to your 'Fragile Beauty' CD. I can't count the times and each time it's a new pleasure.
