    I was away from LitNet for a week or so (due to an enormous pile of marking!). I saw the comments, but I rather thought that the subject had moved on - I didn't want to be necroposting. That said, if you want an answer I'll try to give one - I'll see if I can make time in the next day or so to give it the attention it deserves!

every day is a journey, and the journey itself is home.

52.William Blake- Songs of Innocence and of Experience
"O little Cloud," the virgin said, "I charge thee tell to me,
Why thou complainest not when in one hour thou fade away:
