Ahh indeed life is hard, but all the more satisfying when luck and passion are on your side! ... Although I could do with some of that magic about now. Cheers for the vote mate!

Hello Ben, it's nice to 'meet' you. Your story is good -- as one who has been through this, I can say you've captured the essence very well. It's nice to see that the man has equally felt the pain ...
Very nice job!

Thanks CJ, I appreciate your comments and I'm so glad you liked it. It is often hard to convey such strong emotions in writing and harder to attach then to believable characters. I hope I went some way to achieving this.
