There is much I could associate here with your search for a certain meaning of “mantle” that I hope I mention here in this thread later. For now I just want to mention how much I enjoyed your story on your search for meaning, of mantle! And so glad you found it! It is very interesting the way you sought to use it and found it. Thanks for sharing it!
