Not so much Hell, my friends. The consuming fire of change. Burning away what was to become what will be. The present is change, between these places forever. You can never BE what you WILL BE and you can never BE what you WERE. Shiva destroys and creates. Creation requires destruction, that is change! Change is life, not to change is to be dead. The purifying fire! My thought for the day of the sun.

Well, I make it three letters in wow although I guess there is only 'O' and 'W' ... so you are right! Thanks for the comment, young vampire. :)

Thanks FJ! (incidentally I note we share the same birthday!)

Change is a positive thing ... but it requires loss as well as gain. What is lost and what is gained is the tricky bit! :)

Like the Phoenix that burns before rebirth, continuously renewing itself. Pity that you lost your hair in the process. But I'm sure you'll have a full mallet when you come again as your new self, or at least you'll have plenty of feathers :O
PS: An honest sight and portrait, but....I must leave because I'm feeling hot in here :D
PS: Why do you like the asterisks? Do you use them to feed the bonfire? :P

In reverse order, naturally, ...

My asterisk began life as a shorthand for 'smile' in an email correspondence with a compatriot of yours. Together we 'invented' Shikishi ... an anime virtual film critic. This became shortened to Shi* - with an asterisk of course! On F***r I was 'Shiki' and here I am Shi*. Simple :p :D

If you look back in my albums you will find me with hair, lots of it! Over the years ... ;) ...
'They are not long the years of hair and roses' (with apologies to Dowson)

In my phoenix myth I am coming back as a fish ... so I may well see you around! :)

Agreed, Brigit! The meek may one day inherit the earth but the Fish already make their own heavens! ;)
