Windrider, that picture of Leetah is one of the loveliest I've ever seen. It seems to be part of a larger picture. Have you posted that somewhere?
Kathleen, I commented on yours elsewhere-- your Leetah is so cute!
I admired Leetah so much in Forbidden Grove. She faced her Bridge of Destiny when she left her place of comfort and control to face the unknown for Cutter. She went from a position of dominance and familiarity in the Sun Village to one of inexperience and dependence among the Wolfriders-- and found her own there, as well.
Loss of control was her greatest fear. She overcame it, and has continued to overcome it, all her life.
(EDIT: Oh, now I recognize that picture, Windrider! It's from the cover of this year's fan calendar, isn't it?)
