    Dancing Through Glass Tears Of "pane"

    While chatting with a dear woman and friend of mine here, AlyceNWonderland, I noticed her status talked about swimming through glass tears.  Her status made me think and below is the thought that followed. Rain drops pounding on the window like glass prisms falling from the sky...

    You know what I love? Seeing elderly couples holding hands. Brings a warm fuzzy smile every time. I don't need to have that love as much as I need to know it exists. :)
