Shirley-Anne, I did enjoy this, the scope and sincerity. As a portrait of a person, and a relationship, it has depth and sparkle.

Thanks Daniel. Loving the feedback :)

I have always been able to "see" my poetry and longed to be able to create an image to go with it. I am thoroughly enjoying experimenting with video.

Thanks Tommy x
