My Bio
They call people born where I am from 'sand grown'
which is how I chose my deviant name
We grow from the sand...
The sea, wind & gulls, are background music
Like sand, there is nothing much to catch hold of,
but on a sunny, blue sky day. everything is golden...

My reply: That is a lot of questions. Answering them could take up a whole book, so I won't be able to give a full reply in this short message.

Your work is interesting and does create that atmosphere you were trying to achieve.
