Nor need one seek the aura in the face,
As love unveils the beauty of all things."

Posted:Ok PK you do make me giggle..

I find if I've not spin for a while I loose my co-ordination... I couldn't spin for over a week after my car crash.. when I tried - not only had my ickle muscles tightened up (may have been result form crash - dunno) but I managed to hit myself several times- gave my self a whole new set of bruises..

I think it's because the brain pathways we create/strenghten whilst doing poi start to get used for something else.. or something like that..

I honour you as an aspect of myself..
