everyone can leave the straight and narrow, though for some these mistakes can be more severe and strict then for the others.
it was a lucky day to realize that drugs are not gonna help to see the world happier, brighter, more sunny and smiling. grateful, that now only smiles of the beloved, beauties of nature is what gives hope and pleasure of life, grateful that only COLOR IS MY DRUG! (5 years and 2233 days ago)

I once came across a quote,"There is great beauty in simple things, if we only take the time to notice them" which I think suits this picture. In my opinion, one of men's errors in life is the failure to appreciate the beauty of simple essential things in life, which are sometimes taken for granted, but in reality mean a lot to our well being. These things can be anything that we might take for granted; from emotional feelings, to other people around us, to the nature around us. (5 years and 2236 days ago)

For some, the temptation to push the limits leads to a shortfall in the final goal or destination...this poor chap ran dry across the street from the gas station (red awning in the background). (5 years and 2234 days ago)
