      Blessings Metis. and Question: What do you understand about Elijah and Moses appearing in the mount of transfiguration?
      1. metis
        metis
        Only in terms of my interpretation. Elijah was assumed into heaven but was to return to introduce the Messiah, which is what John the Baptist did. Moses was to lead his people to freedom, which is what Jesus did in the spiritual sense. Both disappear leaving Jesus, to me symbolic that it is he who is the "final answer". How about your interpretation?

      There was not a way to respond to your conversation, kind of a one sided unfortunate attack. I have only one remark: 'Methinks thou dost protest too much.'

        Sorry to take so long but I did skim your ending and did not feel that it ended too abruptly. Again, I feel it was quite well written, so maybe you're just second-guessing yourself a wee bit too much.

        Well done, my friend, and thanks for the honor of being asked to review it.

        Glad to hear that, and I really wish I had the opportunity to visit Australia, but I guess the closest I can get is to order a pint of Fosters. BTW, did you get a chance to meet Crocodile Dundee?
