The sentence of Elbert Hubbard really excited me... You know somehow such English sentences have more effect on me than those Persian sentences...
But this sentence was ... ummmm... marvelous

cool design! I like woods...
It feels that you look at some thing calm & cool and it makes you comfortable,too.
In other words,this is somehow much friendlier than the previous one.

Zahra said...


I love wood as well. Objects made from wood do fascinate me.
