    “lasts somewhere forever” is my favorite. A lovely piece.


  4. Beautiful words.


  5. I love this…from clothing disguises, to our bodies as the mantle, to our core, you describe the soul beautifully.


  6. I like the idea that there is something timeless and lasting within each of us (be it a soul or whatever you might call it).


  7. “A core of Spirit,essence,soul…refined matter”-wow!loved the feeling conveyed of the core being eternal”:-)
