LEIMAYblog: Eija Ranta. Thoughts on A View

"The way we see things is affected by what we know or what we believe. -- When in love, the sight of beloved has a completeness which no words and no embrace can match: a completeness which only the act of making love can temporarily accommodate.

LEIMAYblog // Thoughts on Reverberation by LEIMAY member Eija Ranta

Being born in Finland does not make me resistant to the cold weather.
