    • I'm glad you like it. Thanks for the compliment! Curtis "Ovid" Poe is how I usually like to be credited for writing. And I'd send them to http://publius-ovidius.livejournal.com/213755.html [livejournal.com]. They can actually comment in that one, if they like (not that many would read it. Poetry is something plenty of folks don't care for).
