Re: "getting antique"

Hi Siva, Thanks for reading & workshopping. Log-in, then go to the User Control Panel , and find Manage drafts ; there you will access the stored draft. I save drafts often, b/c, esp these days, I can't always focus & finish in a single sitting. 😎 Michael (MV) Where do drafts get stored ?

Re: "getting antique"

Hi meenas,

Thanks for reading & commenting

It is a metaphor -
Instead of the cliché, getting old, wasting away, "getting antique" is becoming priceless; and actually Life, not a thing, is priceless & forever


in the spirit of clarity & creativity,

😎
