Re: After a Documentary on Michelangelo's David

Re: Hail To Kali

Some suggestions Meena if you want them: I hear bleating laden with fear from a nearby temple Sounds that rip at the heart Perceiving the ritual I stay where I am heart pounding.

You could further refine the title should you wish to: Traditionally Newlywed Couples Start Married Life in the Groom's Parents House Disagree with Michael on this, sorry Michael: I think you mean bathroom, so suggest: The bride's family insisted on an attached bathroom not just a bath placed in a v...

Re: Traveling in Mexico

I like the poem Michael seems to have summed up the intent well. I feel it could benefit with pruning extraneous words. For instance you don't need 'Indian' in indian village, Mayan children gives the clue, the definite article could be left out, its a Mayan village so only Mayan children live there...

Re: mid-year & will be 62 before 2020

62 isn't old Michael
76 isn't old either

92 is getting on for old
The oldest British citizen died last week age 112
that is old. :)

It has bothered many the though that Cain and his brothers had to take wives from their sisters, there are alternative theories not in the bible, but possible and there is the supernatural. I take pleasure in...

Re: Hail To Kali

i didn't know such practices still went on in India.
it is informative and we are lead to search for terms such as
