quiet and solitude helps

  10. Hi Vee,

    There's no harm in trying dear, in fact I am a novice ku-er and we can't quantify something we write as erring, if we write from the heart! Sure, your try is worth it! :) See yours later! :)

  15. Hmmm...yeah Rach...on the northern part is a long stretch of beaches and river, the pic is a river actually, but near or beside a beach already, (my next pic will show soon) and on the southern part are mountain ranges...:)

    Magician? Nope...:) Am happy I could use my own pics for my post na... :) without needing to search one in the net! I will make it a point if possible to use my own pics like u use ur own sketches...:)
