'Be One of Those I Reached'

‘Be One of Those I Reached’: Inspirational Poems of Love and Hope: A Life Circle: About Accepting Angels and Events; by Pearldiver looks at the power of intuition, near death experiences and thought transference. These are relatively unknown aspects of the overall human experience and when such events occur in a random manner, coupled with other things that may outwardly appear to have little relevance to the primary event, it is often referred to as synchronicity.

This poem tells of a real life event that involved a very special entity, that I affectionately refer to as Angel #22, in a really strange set of circumstances that I can't explain. I don't know if it was a working example of the law of attraction, synchronicity, positive thinking, or a trick of the light. But I do know, that not many survive head on crashes with big rig truck and trailer units, when the closing speed is in the vicinity of 130 mph. and both drivers are bracing themselves against the impact, rather than trying to avoid it. Without 'unknown' intervention, in those last fractions of seconds, both drivers would almost certainly have died or suffered terribly.

To Angel #22 I owe my life, for being that 'unknown' element. Later, as a result of that intervention; I taught myself to became a writer and poet, inspired to share the vast life experiences that I have had the opportunity to experience in my life, many I have never shared with others, or family. Perhaps we all have a purpose in this life we know, perhaps, that is the very reason why, there are so many events and occurrences that we can not rationally explain. This was about many things coming together cosmically, at a single moment in time and it involved two parties, separated by over 10,000 physical miles, yet at that very moment in time, mentally connected solely subconsciously!

A simple disclaimer:

If this is considered to be a declaration of madness on the part of the author, then the party who would make that judgment, needs to consider getting a life and becoming more open minded, or alternatively shut the book up and go to sleep!

Like many, I do believe that some of us are lucky enough to experience unusual events, special people, angels and falling stars, because we are open to the wonders around us. I am personally not prepared to credit any other entity with the event or the result, bar the one that I was thinking about and focused on, at that time prior to the event! However, if the intervention of a greater power occurred, then it was not declared and perhaps the ledger will be asked to be squared at a future date.

Please enjoy this poem of hope that each of us will be blessed with meeting our Angel. If you are lucky enough to meet with the art of Angel #22, then you will know that you truly are! Enjoy 'Be One Of Those I Reached' - by the New Zealand poet Pearldiver - a tribute to the deeds of the 'unknown' and an acceptance of the enigmas we face.

What Form Do Angels Exist In?

This Is a True Life Circle.

♥ ‘Be One of Those I Reached’ ♥

Living life was once a hollow task

I didn’t know, that Angels, could be so deep

I never realized, how easily I could crash

Under a truck, my Beamer

Was this cold death, my destiny?

“Wake up,” she cried, “Wake up!”

Life dying at the wheel, this is not a dream

These split seconds take so very long

Completely mesmerized, I’m not asleep

But held in the magic rhythm of her song

“Wake up, oh please wake up!” She pleaded

Though she was 10,000 miles away

Yet here now, this is her voice calling me

I saw horror on the truck driver’s face

Cars behind all slowed, waiting to see

“Wake up, wake up!” She cried

Her last words would set me free


Before her, I had already walked in light

I had died and found my way back

I had astral planed around the world

And I had seen brilliance, lost to crack

“So what,” you may ask, “So who cares?”

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not justifying a life

But rather saying, I’ve had the chance to see

Great things that others will never know

And in places beyond basic consciousness

I’ve felt the pulse of life’s energy’s, ebb and flow

“So, who cares?” They ask, “You must be mad!”

Sure, it’s another state of mind, from which to think

But here, this moment, right now

I’m trying to explain to myself. How?

How her pleas, actually saved my life and how

I missed the crash by less than, one blink

And how an angel seeded this event

So far away, how on earth could she know?

So What - Was it all about?

Welcome Home
Welcome Home | Source

“So what?” You may ask, “So What!”

Well, I’ve learned that life, is truly a precious gift

Not to waste your talents, never get depressed

To be real, not ruled by materialistic greed

Be unique with no facade, different from the rest

Be thankful for nature’s wonder, or the tiniest deed

Walk tall and if you do believe in angels

Then hopefully, all of us are blessed

“Who cares?” Say the critics, “So what?”

I care, which is the point and caring is an art

She taught me how to love, unconditionally

And how I needed to follow my true heart

To find a real purpose for one’s life journey

To write the words of all wisdom earned

And never let excuses, hold me from a start

“Okay, but so what?” You may well ask, “So what?”

Well, you see special ones truly color your life

And I’ve achieved results, unexpected by me

Believing in abilities, that I’d given up on doubting days

Like suffering the bearable isolation, of self love

I’ve laughed, grown wiser, in many new found ways

Do You believe what you see?


“So what was it all about Angel?” I ask

Was I there to experience my own death?

Will you ever tell me how you knew?

I was so sure that I would die

That I didn’t take a breath

How strange your seductiveness is

Just to win a soul, my love, my heart

Subtle prelude to harsh lessons yet, on how to care

Wake me up echoes sent, surfacing from the past?

Now each day I live, I can thank you

But that’s an easy cross to bear

And where ever you are flying today

I hope that your skies are clear

May I dedicate this story to universal hope?

To the light at every tunnel’s end, saving us from fear

To all ships that pass, yet always know intuitively

To all critics with no life experience, to help them cope

If you astral plane with Angels, then learn, to just be

And the forms you meet within, the white light’s energy

Are there, to watch over you, guides waiting patiently

To welcome home roaming angels

When they tire, from loving, selflessly

Where ever you're flying today

- I Hope Your Skies Are Clear. -
- I Hope Your Skies Are Clear. - | Source

Sometimes events really do inspire us

Sometimes angels truly leave their mark

It was Angel #22 who saved my life and now

With that death’s grip, so luckily breached

I’ll always love my long distance angel

For painting brilliant colors in my dark

“Wake up,” she said with her brush, “Wake up!”

“And be one those, I reached!”

♥ Pearldiver ♥

      Hi Prisana, thank you for your wonderful compliment and of course for taking the time to read my work... I really appreciate your words and presence also... though I must say that envy enveloped me when you mentioned sitting on a quiet beach in Thailand.. :( :) I know how awesome that is!

      I have been surprised at how many people have had similar experiences and have had many emails from readers as a result of this article... And finding out that Angel #01 is a Pisces, was also a fact worth considering... I believe Angel #22 is a Leo.. so hey, they are like us aren't they astrologically speaking? I'm glad that you got through your experience and that you have found happier times.. maybe it's these sort experiences and our angels that do link people like us throughout the world... but whatever it is.. I am truly grateful and happy for it! You take care... all the best.. PD

      I was trying to remember when I first read your poetry, but really it doesn't matter. Maybe in a past life? Love your thoughts and how I discovered you again this morning....while sitting on a quiet beach in Thailand. I had a similar experience years back that I had forgotten about until I read your poem. I was driving one night in Phuket and had fallen asleep and heard a man's voice telling me to "WAKE UP!" Twice he more or less commanded me to wake up! Fortunately I heard his plea or command and thusly woke up and survived that night.

      I could easily spend many many more hours reading your thoughts and will, but will end my comments today with this one last comment: you are an amazing writer and I am happy to have found a few of your bottles this morning that were never lost at sea. Cheers mate!

      Hi Rebecca, thank you for taking the time to read this poem of hope and your much appreciated compliment. This was very hard to write, as I felt that it's context would not be taken in the way that I meant it to be. But since publishing, I have noticed that the words chosen have in themselves given rise to numerous interpretations and, that is a far better result than I had originally hoped for. I am very lucky that I have had such an understanding group of readers with this who have an appreciation of such experiences... Glad you enjoyed this... just that simple thing has made writing worthwhile.. You Take Care and Be Well

      Hi Vocalcoach, thank you for taking the time to read this experience. I wish I could actually explain it in greater depth, like I had been drunk... or something simple like that.. but I can't. Perhaps that is the magical aspect that 'Woke Me Up!'

      The people who have read this work and those who have commented (bar the photo scrapper!) all have presence and depth, from what I have fathomed from reading their works. On the subject of Angels, or indeed anything else, it does not take a deep person very much to gauge in others what comes from their factual experiences and what is simply a product of their fantasy. Such experiences are defining events and we tend to always be better for them. Explore yours and I'm sure that you will find links to other events.

      I am glad that you appreciated this poem of hope and I really do appreciate your encouragement. I hope that my writing can always provide an equal level of that. Kia Kaha - be strong and be well. Thanks for your support.

      How grateful I am, that you have shared this experience with us here on hubpages. One line that you wrote, touched me so. " But held in the magic rhythm of her song ..." I know, because it has happened to me, that angels exist. I was once saved from what would have been a deadly car-crash one dark, rainy night. The crash never happened...a miracle performed by my guardian angel. This is the first time I have ever spoken about it. Thank you for giving me the courage. Your poetry is brilliant and like a haunting and beautiful melody, begs to be read...again and again. I send you a warm thank you

      and am so very touched. vocalcoach

      Hi Saddlerider, thanks for reading this work and for your comments here. I will read that work of yours that you have mentioned, with a great deal of interest. I very much appreciate your endorsement of the Pearldiver review done by Website Examiner. I'm glad you like my work, it is not intended to be mainstream in any respect... more on subjects that people prefer not to discuss openly.

      So yeah, I would say that your belief is well grounded and that perhaps that reason is your ability to reach others, through your writing. There are indeed many times in our lives that merit such consideration. You, have also had a major change in direction, which is I'm sure part of the process.. wow you certainly do know what I was taking about in this poem then. Cheers my friend, I really do appreciate your comments.. You Take Care out there be truly well.

      What a magnificent writer you are. You stirred some very deep emotions in my soul. I am definitely a believer in angels and spirits. Without taking to much white space here I will simply say that my first Angel was sent to me at 15 and I wrote a Hub about it in one of my earlier writes.( The boy from the bottom of the hill)

      He found me at that tender age, a wayward boy sopping wet standing at his door with his dry cleaning flung over my shoulder. From that day forward him and his wife took a shine to this lost boy and took me in.

      He became a father replacement figure, my mentor, my teacher and best friend. From a teenager to adult he was a blessing in my life and I am thankful that he was sent into my life to guide me and lead me from the gutter I was heading for.

      In 2000 after a very awful War of the Roses divorce that cost me so much loss, children and self esteem, I left the career I was doing very well in at the time real estate sales and took a completely radical detour in the road. I became a professional Class1 18 wheeler over the road truck driver.

      On one occasion I was seconds away from a head on collision with another 18 wheeler in our Canadian Rockies. He had fallen asleep and was on my side of the road, a flash came to me in my rig to yell into my CB radio WAKE UP and in front of my eyes I saw my life flash before me, the other driver swung his truck into the proper lane.

      I pulled over shaking and crying yet a peace came over me and I knew my Angel saved me, it was not my time yet.

      Another occasion my co-driver and I saved a husband and wife team as their rig turned over on a hill below us after sliding on black ice, we kicked in their drivers side window and pulled them out in time before their rig caught fire.

      Again I felt an angel giving us the energy and ability to save these two souls.

      Lastly again back in the Rockies, I turned a bend and came across a semi with both his trailers loaded with lumber flipped over. I pulled over quickly and ran to his rig, he was laying very still, I took his pulse and yelled to him without any response. I felt a tug on my shoulder kinda like you can't help him he is gone.

      Again a peace came over me as I felt his spirit leave his body.

      So Pearl do I believe in Angels, most certainly. We all have a destiny and when it's our time to leave, nothing will stop that no matter what age we are. I felt this beautiful, brilliant poem and I am glad that your Angel saved you to be here to write and share. Your Angel is guiding you for sure. peace my friend.

      Hello Peter, thanks for reading this work and yes, there is a lot of emotion within most of my works... that is a prerequisite to the writing of good poetry.. the very thing that connects to the reader and says this poet knows what they are talking about! If you did indeed have an experience of a similar nature, then talking about it is exactly what is required, to help understand the event, which genuinely has occurred for a genuine reason!

      As far as 'fearing' madness is concerned, like any fear - not taking the time in your life to face it and deal with it can lead to the exact thing that you are trying to avoid... no degree of madness can be found in personal courage! Take Care.... not to step on the cracks!

      Hello zunsupergirl, thanks for your comment, I don't know if you actually read this work, but given what you are saying here, I hope that you did! I don't mean to burst your bubble; but no one has the ability to assume that 'my values' are laid out in public forums on the net! I can assure you that I certainly do not do that here - if people perceive my 'values' to be such, then they do so at their own peril! However, if you read my poetry, or my articles you will then have the ability to gauge the values that spin my wheels!

      I am not a 'born again' Christian... that is your call and as far as I'm concerned, your call does not make you greater or lesser than I... and visa versa. I believe in People.. I don't care what color or religion they are.. unless they consider that they are superior to me.. which they are not! That is my view of Religion and Religious People! Now if that requires debate, then the party asking for clarification, in my opinion seriously needs to get a life!

      If you have found strength in your belief to rise above adversity and gain help in finding your life path - then you will find nothing but support and positive words from me! Perhaps that is the strength that you are already seeing in my nature? I am pleased that you found it important to take responsibility for the rest of your life from the starting point, that for every person, is different. It requires complete honesty with yourself first and THAT (in my view) is the most productive thing that anyone can do, as it allows one to appreciate and love them self from within. Good on you.. and yes I am a strong person... I had to be.. to rise above my own set of trials.. that most would not have survived! You have a Great Life.. but don't forget to give yourself some credit for what it becomes.. take care...

Yes, I am really lucky that I 'woke' as you put it, but I wasn't asleep! - I was more like a stunned mullet... or out to lunch.. totally elsewhere! And I am lucky that you can kick down a Beamer and they let you zoooom out of danger! Cheers for taking the time.. take care mate.

      There is something to be said for a person who isn't afraid to speak their mind and stick to "what it is that they beleive in". While I may not share all of your values, as I have read many of your posts, I do admire your strength...not that you need any ego points from me ;-) I, for one, am a born-again Christian. It took me my whole life to reach this point, being spit our by the world and a product of a dysfunctional society. I blamed everyone but myself for what wronged me, then it hit me. Life isn't supposed to be a joy ride, but a training ground...just my thoughts. Have a great day.

      Hi Doug, thanks for stopping by and reading this Life Circle and for your kind words. Yep there will always be things or events in our lives, that we may never be able to understand, no matter how much they are analyzed. I'm sure that we should embrace those times and consider them to be an opportunity to embrace and create positive change in our lives. I guess for me, that change was to learn to write down, in an interesting manner, the words that I have carried in my heart over the years. You know what I mean, you are going through a similar set of changes as well, yeah? So take care my friend and become good at catching and embracing all the magic in this life that you can... ha..with or without a tux!

      Well, for a generally emotionless American who grew up in the 90's -- lobotomized by consumerism and wanton violence, I can honestly say that I was surprised by how inspiring and moving this was to read (maybe it's the tux and the marriage, as you mentioned).

      Very fascinating read. And while I can never understand everything you went through and experienced, nor can I fathom the nature of what might have saved your life, I'm glad that the event brought forth your fine talents. In that regard, it truly was an angel that intervened.

      Bravo. Glad I stopped in here after a long day's work. I needed a read like this. Thanks for spending your 500th with me. It seems like only yesterday you we were sharing your 428th or so. Cheers mate.

      Hello Martie, thank you for reading this life circle and for your positive comments. How is South Africa? Yes, Critics are a breed that I have contended with since I was 8 years old and achieved a major goal that I had spent nearly a year on. I have always been fortunate enough to be allergic to negative people.. (or perhaps visa versa) Critics are generally non achievers, as you indicate and the very best way that I have learned to deal with them, is to succeed consistently at what one does, irrespective of the voodoo dolls and negative efforts that so often support their insecurities.

      I appreciate the wisdom of your post Martie.. I feel on many occasions that #22 is not far away... so I must speak nicely of her yeah? Haha don't want an Icarus effort, if I ever get carried away! Cheers Martie, you take care and if we all believe then we must indeed be blessed!

      Many kinds of inexplicable things happen to some of us, and open our eyes, ears and senses to hidden truths. Most people cannot understand this, and will, perhaps driven by envy, try to convince us (and others) that we are living in our imagination. So what? The privilege(s) were ours not theirs – opportunities given to us to live and appreciate live on a deeper level.

      Pearldiver, I enjoyed this poem very much. I can assure you that I will not ask you “so what?” I just nod my head, realizing you are truly fortunate.... actually you are supremely favored by Angel #22.... and of course I believe angels are in the employ of God, the Ultimate Truth we can’t understand.

      Hi erthfrend, thanks for reading this life circle and for your kind comments. I have just been watching a doco about a NZ team of women who are Dragon Boat champs and are due to leave the country to defend their international title. Their team line up varies continuously, yet they go on and on regardless. They are amazing as the prerequisites of being in their team, is not age or skills.. but rather a sense of humor and a history of breast cancer. They honor their lost friends by always floating a rose for each of them before a race and row with the belief that those passed friends are always there with them as angels motivating their cause.

      So yes, there is a power 'unknown' that walks among us, isn't there. I'm glad you appreciate my work erthfrend.. you take care.

      My pleasure! Ah - what a gratifying reply. I certainly sense your fiery strength and now, your heart, as well. The nature of Dragon and Scorpio influences must be quite vivid and emphatic to have as part of oneself. Your background too - would surely hone your strengths and might tend to shelter your heart.

      Your experience of near death is amazing. I hesitate to comment a lot, lest I distract in any way from the facts of it which you've shared so eloquently.

      I also know no other way to write but as it pours forth from somewhere inside - heart, soul, timelessness, wherever & whatever that "where" is. Trying is a sure way to bomb out for me. I usually hesitate even to edit much, if any. If I see other words or arrangements that would work, I take them as a different poem emerging, rather than an alteration to an existing one. I've changed a few things since I'm now transcribing from handwritten notebooks to computer, but it still feels a bit like a new work rather than a revision when I do that.

      Thank you for the well-wishes (both here & on my 'Revolving Door' hub) - and for giving me an extra year! Feb. 2 was my 79th actually, which means the completion of 79 living years. So I'm into the 80th now. hehe. By now years are both more extraordinary and more every-day! I love being alive and experiencing NOW, so I find that other spots on the continuum are to be valued, but can't be substituted for the present.

      I'm pleased to finally know you! Hugs.

      Hi Nellieanna, Thank you. For caring... For Seeking and for Building upon the vastness of your stored wisdom.. And of course, for reading my works. I write from the heart as I do not know how else to communicate with people, other than in humor. I knew this angel from a prior event in my life and it was that which I was focused on at the time of the near accident.. and though she was 14000 miles away.. it was her voice yelling at me that snapped me back into real time.. I am sure that I had been astral planing at the time because I had been listening to her singing a traditional song to me.. and I was there (as well as driving here!)

      This has not softened my heart Nellieanna.. it has always been an open and deep heart, with a very slow beat. What this did do was, to inspire me to write and pass on some of the amazing things and people that I have experienced in my life.. I was raised on an island, like a castaway... beyond that, my lateral thinking was a burden that many attempted to destroy in me, as opposed to nurturing... a bit like taking the unicorn's horn, for boasting rights.. so yep things have made me stronger, but I also have both Dragon and Scorpio Star Signs... so I'm more than adequately equipped to cope with any situation, any hardship, any great events!

      Happy 78th Birthday Nellieanna. You take Care and Thank You for your kindness and support. Be Well.

      Pearldiver - Your visit and comments honor and humble me. Your perspective seem to arise from a rarefied depth not easily fathomed, so I'll not presume to, except to accept it gratefully.

      Like many of life's - or awareness' most extraordinary experiences, one cannot TRY to get it. It seems to arise from within oneself to meet with and become encapsulated by a somewhere/someone on a higher plane, making a connection after which one is never again the same. Your experience was surely such a one.

      There is simply no need or call to defend or justify it to skeptics - who are simply those who have as yet missed such an intimate connection in their own lives. It might be thought of as enlightenment vs. non-enlightenment, but that is too overused and connotes an elitist status which this real experience such as yours doesn't convey so much as it transforms. One of the bible's loveliest verses is in Romans 12 - "be not conformed to this world, be transformed by renewing of your faith . . ." To me it speaks of that kind of revealing of the perspective such as you describe. And to me "faith" is a personal realization, not a dogma.

      The tendency is to think what one thinks is IT, so it is natural that hearing your experience, if it is outside some people's own experience or point of view which they've developed, their attitude about it will be skeptical. And there is possibility that some key phrase, some authenticity of your account of it will touch some buried recognition and they MIGHT say, "OH - really? OK!" But more than likely they will just raise an eyebrow, look toward their left brain briefly and either comment, try to be open-minded (which is another one of those things it's almost impossible to do deliberately!) -- and move on as though nothing happened. BUT - if it happens to them, as to you or in some unique way, they will never again be the same, either. Any agreement intellectually is unlikely to have that deep KNOWING which you experienced. But sharing it might help someone uncover his or her own brush with an entity such as your Angel 22. Those entities don't NEED our acknowledgement. We just need our own understanding about this special part of reality.

      Your poetry is beautiful and so expressive. I love that it just speaks from your inspiration without trying to impress. The energy and purpose permeate, are not superimposed. I love it.

      And - this is just my own observation or intuition, - I think the experience both strengthened you and softened your heart, from what I have read of your story and your writings, which I've delved into on occasion. Thank you for bringing yourself to us.

      Hello Laura, thank you for taking the time to read this poem of hope and for your positive compliments. You bring up a good point about recognizing them Laura.. that's maybe a bit harder than it would seem and no I don't think that we have to specifically have a near death experience to gain the opportunity. I sometimes wonder how incredibly tech savvy they must be... and how many emails they would get if they were identified so easily by us mortal beings! Thank you for your support Laura, I'm glad that you enjoyed this work. Take Care... and if you find Angel #22 in your travels, you'll meet one of the best of them.

      Hi imchemist, thanks for visiting.. did you only do so to look at the pictures, or were you downloading my pics for image sites? Interesting... my works ARE copyrighted as are my pics... If they turn up elsewhere, then I guess I'll find out very quickly, who breached my copyright huh? I take it you know my recourse options, given the notifications within my work.

      Beautiful, beautiful poetry. I like to think that there are angels all around us - we only really need to take the time out and realise and recognise them. We don't need to have a near death experience to see the angels!

      Love your poetry!

      Hi Ruby, thank you for taking the time to read this work and for your positive comment. Yes there must be a huge demand for Angels worldwide.. which I guess makes it pretty special when one enters your life and lets you know in one way or another, how special and how busy they are. Be well and take care

      Hi Schoolmarm, thank you very much for your comment and for reading this Life Circle. Yes, these style of events really do tend to have a major positive effect on our lives. But you do have to give up many things to allow those changes to take affect. Haha.. I miss some of those bad habits so much! Cheers Take care.

      This truly touched me - I experienced something similar 10 years ago. It's wonderful how your life can change so completely from such an event. Beautiful.

      Hi Shalini, Thanks for calling to read this work and for leaving me such a positive comment. It's true Shalini and without having experienced this whole sequence of events, then firstly, I would not be here and secondly I would not be here, with the ability to put words to those indescribable aspects of life, death and all the other things that I would love to disclose about Angel #22... Inspiration is a great thing isn't it? You take care Shalini..cheers for your support.

      Oh Pearldiver - beautifully put, I love the images. But even more, you touched a chord. All we need to do to astral plane with angels is...just be. No time, no space, just that white light energy! Sometimes, you put what seems indescribable into words. Thank you.

      Hi there Micky, thanks for reading this work and for your kind comment. Yes you need to be careful out there on the road Micky.. believe me.. sometimes you need a supercharger to avoid the trucks mates... it might pay you to consider attaching a stick to your rocket for extra power and directional control.. Phew this was a close call.. You take care out there Sir.

      Hello Eiddwen, thank you for reading this poem of hope and for your positive comment. I'm glad you enjoyed this work. It was quite hard writing about this event as it really was a powerful occasion that I have never been able to fully explain.. How powerful are our minds? Cheers for your support.. take care.

      Hello Dj, thank you for reading this work and for your WOW! Yes well maybe they really are everywhere, though I think perhaps only 'materialize' in certain circumstances. This relates to one of my angel experiences and I certainly would not be here, had it not happened. Glad you enjoyed it.. Cheers and take care.

      All I can say is WOW! Words fail me especially when I am truly amazed! Angels are everywhere. Thanks for sharing, I enjoyed your poetry. =)

      Fair Enough mate! Cheers for accepting a tired response from me, having pulled an all nighter! I appreciate your words Sir. The event that I describe in this is factually the reason that I do many things, including writing... I didn't write before and this was only 2 years ago.

      So sure.. bugger the sceptics etc. - If they can start from scratch and within 2 years have their work read in 160 countries, or be found on Google at #1 of 2,200,000,000 (for Poetry).. then I might feel like they are worth listening to, yeah? You enjoy your movie and cheers for your positive support... Be Well Ian.

      PearlDiver, I wasn't being polite. I loved your hub. It gave me a lot of food for thought (Hackneyed expression, I know, but it fits) and corny though it may sound, I'm going to watch 'City of Angels' tonight, as that film encapsulates my concept of angels... and Bugger everybody else's!

      Ha Ian... Seriously.. you don't have to be polite, but thanks! And for reading this work. This isn't about me reaching others.. this is about being reached as I was. It might have been better if I had chosen different keywords, perhaps? Roaring is good for your health... Unless you are Roaring about someone else's health or ill health.. I'm told. Take Care mate!

      I am feeling so pensive. But that was what you wanted, didn't you?

      Let the sceptics roar, PearlDiver; what if they do? You reached me today; profoundly. I hope you reach at least one other.
