sleep that wakes in laughing day,
health that mocks the doctor's rules,
knowledge never learned of schools.”

20 Nov 2012 4:44pm

@Eros: Hi Eros, how nice to hear from you after all this while! You'll find it hard to believe, but just yesterday I visited your page, only to see your last post on March 1st, 2012. I was wondering if you had moved away somewhere, or just lost all interest in photography & your friends here, on AM3. Hope you are doing well:)

Eros from tehran, Iran

that's so sweet, tnks :) no i never forget abt my friends here, i mean it. sometimes life gets hard and one (AKA me :) ) gets unfocused. But things are good now

20 Nov 2012 5:09pm

@Eros: I know exactly what you mean. But then life will always bring its ups & downs, twist & turns...that's what life is & living it means going with the flow but not losing course & the idea of who you are! Take care, be well & hope to see you posting here once again:)
