I'm glad it is.

An eclipse is an astronomical event that occurs when an astronomical object is temporarily obscured, either by passing into the shadow of another body or by having another body pass between it and the viewer. An eclipse is a type of syzygy.[1]
The term eclipse is most often used to describe either a solar eclipse, when the Moon's shadow crosses the Earth's surface, or a lunar eclipse, when the Moon moves into the shadow of Earth.

I permanently deleted my facebook a few months ago, I didn't have much friends on facebook because I didn't believe they were entitled to be called friends, I only had about 60 and I can say that only 2 of them were my friends, facebook made people remember me just on my birthday because it writes a message on the side saying "it's Safaa's birthday today send a gift ", when I was on facebook my wall would be filled with happy birthday wishes and all sort of nice fake messages from all my contacts, but now only one or two people call me in person and tell me what they really wanna say, these were the only two real people around me.
facebook is a fake place, a place where people can easily pretend and lie to others without even being suspected of committing a social crime. 

The best thing that has happened to me in the last year was Flickr, I feel safe around here, it's a real place where I know no one in person but still feel that I can tell them anything, without being judged or mocked or even lied to.

it's like an open diary where I get to share what I'm feeling through the day and have some real people, sharing my nice moments with me, comforting me for my sad ones and just being kind when needed, people whom I will respect for not being as fake as most people around me are.
I love Flickr for it's a place where I share my art with others, it is no place for phonies we all share out knowledge help each other with everything related to photography, art and even life.
I have to admit that Flickr has been a great deal of help to me during my depression, the friends I met there made me realize how powerful the love of life is, everyone was a part of the healing process for me, I would share my feeling with them and they would listen and help me think straight, they have pulled my out of the mud I was sinking in ..
this place saved my life, I was ashes when I first joined, now I'm all solid and walking tall.
I owe this place so much.

in a blink of an eye!

“Books are for people who wish they were somewhere else.”

"Lord! when you sell a man a book you don't sell just twelve ounces of paper and ink and glue - you sell him a whole new life. Love and friendship and humour and ships at sea by night - there's all heaven and earth in a book, a real book." ~Christopher Morley
now that I think about it, my first 19 years went by very quickly, while the last year has been the longest year of my life and it seems like it has taken it a century to pass.
it's true what they say, that good days fly by, and hard ones linger.
these were just my thought while taking and editing this photo.

Having only joy is great. Having only fear sucks. But having both … that’s life-defining.

Dear Blog,
I'm extremely hungry, I haven't slept well in days, and I'm exhausted.
but I choose to leave everything right now and write this post, because this feeling that I'm having is is just incredibly beautiful and I want to write right now, before it fades.
I haven't felt like this in a long time, it feels like decades away the last time I was flying from happiness.
today was perfect, I can honestly admit that I am happy today, I love this feeling, I missed it so much, and I'm so tired and overwhelmed to jump or scream or do anything to express it, so I'm gonna write about it.
I've worked hard the past few days to get here, but I never thought it would make me feel like this, I've been happy all day, I've met new people, people I wanted to see for a along time, people were talking to me and praising me and telling me how much an impact I was on their lives, and how they were eager to meet me as well.
in the middle of this whole thing I felt like crying, my tears almost slipped, but no, let's just enjoy it for now, I've done a good job, people watched my work and liked it, I have to say I was petrified of the judgment, but apparently, I underestimated my self
I have not been proud of my self for a long time, I'm Happy today :)

P.S : for this person who does not know who he is, just a few words from you made my day extraordinary, thank you for granting me a huge part of today's happiness :)

“we’re all gonna get lumps and we’re all going to get bumps. None of us can predict the future, but we do know one thing about it: and that’s that it ain’t going to go according to plan. There are times in your life when you will get tossed in the well, with twists in your stomach and holes in your heart. And when that bad news washes over you and that pain sponges and soaks in, I just really hope you feel like you’ve always got two choices.
“One, you can swirl and twirl and you can gloom and doom forever; or two, you can grieve and then face the future with newly sober eyes. Having a great attitude is about choosing option number two, and choosing, no matter how difficult it is, no matter what pain hits you, choosing to move forward and move on and take baby steps into the future.”

I guess it's finally happening, the grass is getting greener :)
