Laks, you started the month nominating a poem and went on to have a poem or quote in each nomination. Nicely done! I was looking for parts in abc00's post to quote in response. It turned out to be one of those posts where one wants to quote the entire post. A fine combination of direct advice/suggestions and the life experiences it took to arrive at those. Often, the best itineraries come from those who have trekked a similar journey! .
