Never ending love





Never ending love



We are touched by the hand of an angel.

We have found us in spite of our fate.

Our fate is to be not together

and perhaps is it for me too late.



Always I am lost when I see you,

if I look in your eyes, see your smile.

Then I know I will feel it for ever.

This love is not just for a while.



And you know that I want to belong you,

and I know you want also the same.

The hand of an angel protects us.

Nobody…

The Big World V. Little Bunny

Hiya, folks!

These illustrations inspired me to share some principles I believe in. I'm definitely the last person to give advice on how to deal with your problems and/or everyday situations; especially the ones when you feel like even your pinkie toe is onto you. It decides to stub itself like nobody's business. You swear, try to walk it off and you trip and go down pretty hard. Did I perfectly illustrate my point…

The man out of shock simply placed his hand on her shoulder and said "My dear, this love and infatuation are all nothing. You are too young to be behaving like this. Please go home and study hard so that you can have a successful life."..…

Learning English isn't only learning a language

I did the first step to learn English when I was 60 years old. That's now four years ago. The second step was very difficult for me. It was the step to speak with people. I've always thought I should be an excellent English speaker before I can talk with someone. I was always afraid to make mistakes, that anybody can't understand me and I also don't understand what they say. So was the third step to get more self confidence. Although I knew that it doesn't count so much whether we are…

The key is to be readable

Yes, 'to be readable' means 'to be enjoyable and easy to read'.

If that's true for you, you're not alone in feeling that. It's not easy for a learner to write something readable, even though they may have a wide…

THE LIFE SUITCASE

Good afternoon. 

I guess many famous authors and writers created their novels because they wanted to share their feelings and emotions with this world. Seems that many people who practice blogging have the same intentions. I suppose that right now I'm doing the same. 

It's not a secret that we all start living our real life when we are not as tasty and juicy as a fresh peach because you can realize and find your own way only when you have a great life experience (though it can…
