Job Well DoneHe sat there in the crowded hallway -- of which you took no notice
Slowly taking his crayon, pens, lined paper -- you looked at your watch
He, all of 10, disappears writing his work -- too busy as you wander
Laying on the floor he writes it slowly -- not paying attention
He sits there in the hallway holding the sign -- the train is late
"It's Sometimes Pointless" it says, coffee stains -- you stop and stare
There is a crowd forming slowly, he looks straight ahead -- what is he doing?
He holds it with two small fingers, blank look cast -- you squint
It was then they started, carrying on about the sign -- they got angry
How it was not this nor that, prettily done, message wrong -- letters of protest
The security guards asked him to move on, after complaints -- noisy they were
Where was his parents, what was he doing there - looks of disgust
He just disappeared off, leaving his sign
Tossing in the streets blowing loudly
And the commuters returned to their trains
Smiling at a job well d
Epilepsy: A BreakdownSo, what exactly is epilepsy?Epilepsy: A Breakdown8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Epilepsy is a common neurological condition that affects about 1 person in every 200. Seizures are the result of a brief, temporary disruption to the usual activity of the brain. Reasons can include brain damage, scarring, chemical or hormonal imbalance, or tumors. There are many types of seizures – what happens before, during and after a seizure depends on which part of the brain is affected and how far the disruption spreads. Most seizures are over in a few minutes or less and the person recovers quickly. Epilepsy can affect anyone, of any age or race, either sex and from any walk of life. However, the majority of people with epilepsy respond well to treatment and can get on with their lives.
Living with epilepsy
Experiences of epilepsy and of having seizures vary from person to person.
Birthday Feature and my thanksHi sweeties, I'm overwhelmed by the amount of love I get from you all here on DA. First with the news of my pregnancy and after with all the birthday wishes you all sent me.Birthday Feature and my thanks5 months ago in Personal More Like This
I have to say, my blood family may not care about me at all, but I know for sure my heart family does and I don't feel alone.
Telling you all thanks doesn't seem to describe my feelings for all of you and it feels so little, but I can't find any other word to let you know how thankful and joyful I am. Thank you all my dears for being here for me, for being such loving and caring people, for letting me know I'm not alone and for letting me feel so loved.
I got such wonderful and amazing gifts from my friends and so many birthday wishes I was overwhelmed:

When I grew old,
When my hair is gray
and white, thin?
When I no longer
Would you stay
by my side,
When I cannot recognize
who you are;
To remind me

My 2013 FavoritesHello dear watchers and friends,My 2013 Favorites2 months ago in Art Features More Like This
I hope everyone of you have a wonderful holiday time and have a good start in the new year.
I had a nice time with my family and some of my best friends. Tomorrow the "real world" have us again in their greedy claws so I decide to remind myself of really great works of 2013. I started with training basics, before I come back with commercial works.

A DAY TO REMEMBER.....A DAY TO REMEMBER.....6 months ago in Personal More Like This
THERE ARE SOME DAYS IN YOUR LIFE THAT YOU
NEVER FORGET.... SOMETIMES THE REASON FOR
THIS IS POSITIVE.... OTHER TIMES ... NEGATIVE.....
12 YEARS AGO TODAY, I WAS STILL WORKING AT
LISBON AIRPORT FOR AN AMERICAN AIRLINE...
THE LISBON TO NEW YORK FLIGHT HAD ALREADY
LEFT A COUPLE OF HOURS EARLIER...
AND SUDDENLY... "THE WORLD WENT CRAZY"...
I SHALL NEVER FORGET HOW STUNNED AND SHOCKED WE
ALL WERE.... APART FROM THE HORROR WE WERE
WATCHING ON THE T.V. SCREEN.... IT THEN OCCURED TO
US THAT "OUR PLANE" WAS STILL IN THE AIR.....
IT WAS ONLY 20HRS LATER THAT WE GOT A CALL
FROM THE CAPTAIN OF "OUR FLIGHT", THEY WERE SAFE,
THEY HAD BEEN REROUTED TO BERMUDA.... :iconyeeplz:
THAT WAS THE YEAR I LEFT COMMERCIAL AVIATION...
JUST 2 MONTHS AFTER THIS.... I HAD HAD ENOUGH....
FOR TOO MANY REASONS....
I LOVE B&W WORKS... AND DO NOT ASSOCIATE THEM WITH
ANY NEGATIVE FEELINGS.

Featuring her works
1. What type of art work do you do.
I do doodle. Most of the time I do basic black and white doodle, but now I am trying to challenge myself to make a colorful doodle. I am not really good in color, so I guess I have a lot of things to learn. So yeah, basically I do black and white doodle
2. Have you studied art or are you self taught.
I wish I could go to the art school to study more about art, I am a self taught artist. I learn by making mistakes.
3 What is your favourite art piece of your own? Why?
I really like this piece of art that I made not so long ago, the reason why I like it the most is because I was trying to make something different from what I've made before. I was try
