Thanks so much @indie.highsmith :) I'm humbled and flattered. I hope I can evoke a similar response from you with future stories!

And I see you are a lifelong wanderer, very cool! Will be keeping my ears tuned to your narratives as wanderers are like sponges soaking up all of the mystery going on in the world - this is excellent fodder for story idea generation.

You're welcome, @danielshortell. I will be posting about some of the stories that I have picked up along the way, and some others that my father used to recount after leaving a certain country, for it was our ritual to tell what we have learned and appreciated.
