    • Ah, Just biblical folklore really, sparks. Uriel was the archangel who guarded the Gates of Eden. Gabriel’s pithy justification alludes to how a loving God could allow evil in the world. And I’m sure you can guess who the Light Bringer is …

  1. Aha – typical Andy-w-t-s-style. I would have picked this out as yours even if it wasn’t on your blog. I think you have definitely found your writing voice. This is fabulous – as always :-)*

  2. So glad you found that this one gave you such motivation that you were able to write despite life! It is a great piece and we will miss you until you are back with us! xx

    • I dont really want to leave as feel I’ve got the momentum going. Tell you what, I’ll try and submit fri or sat as during the week is a bit hectic. See how it goes.
