    been enjoying reading your work diane- hope the comment was helpful, sometimes i suppose we all write things we aren't conciously aware of (most don't admit it! :) then later when we are, sometimes its a key to unlocking the next idea or where to take it :)

    Thanks for your comment and the fave of Anything Again. I seldom write in that style, but that woman with her chocolate has been eating me up for a while and she finally escaped!
