Hi LJs!

First of all I wish all of you a very happy 2014, full of sawdust and splinters and luv ;)

As a quick update, after the worst storm I ever came across, things have suddenly changed to the best in a single day in mid-november. As of now I still won’t have much time available for posting and general lurking here (or even on flickr) but in a nutshell: it’s a new life!

Glad to hear you’ve found a new path to stroll on buddy! Sounds like its lined with some good old oaks.

If your smiling, your doing it right.

Hey Thomas, they say it’s always darkest just before dawn

a bientôt

Thomas, I can echo what Paul said. Life is a lot like the weather, it never stays the same, just endure the storms and enjoy the sunny days when you can. Don’t let anything drag you down to giving up. Great to hear from you.
