Is it though? I suppose in a way it is. But I find it to be imperfect. Blissfully natural.

Thank you!

I've been on DA since 2001. diffrent accounts of course. Fell out, came back. But it took me 6 years to get a DD.
It takes time, and the people who really enjoy your work make it happen for you. You'll get one soon though, I'm sure of it.

I would be over the moon. I have suggested so many people for a DD, and quite a few have received them. I just like to make them as happy as I would be.
peace.

It's so beautiful, I think that the original title is perfect, because it gives me the sensation of everything passing by - I'm only watching, if you understand what I mean ^^

Great job:aww:

Yes, it's a little bit annoying, there are some characters that they don't allow either, like the exclamation point and it's like rawwrrawrr!

I had the title "The Girl" then another girl made a comment stating that "life seems to pass her by". SO I chose that name instead.
And life really passed us by when we were together.
