  3. The upbeat wind seems like a positive thing.....and hope the veil is only a temporary thing.

  4. We almost always seem "veiled" during a first encounter, only when we become comfortable do we remove them. Very thoughtful write!

  7. Lovely poem, with a very real situation under scrutiny. Nervousness can overshadow some first encounters...

  9. This was so much more powerful and enigmatic than the WCW poem. The heart - "no taboo, nor rehearsal... veil." Deep, moody. Loved it, and thanks for stopping by to visit me, too! Amy

  10. ...it's normal to feel this way at first encounter... that's where we all started with a stranger until that mutual connection is revealed.... smiles...

  13. smiles...it's good when we don't need a rehearsal veil.. it's exciting to meet someone in person who you have known for a while from a distance..
