    wonderful play! :-)
    hot and tender
    heart body and soul

    the play’s the thing

    Thank you, Peter, for the joy in your eight words that I want to read again and again.

    Indeed we do, whatever our definitions of friction or love. This is one of those haiku that makes us realize, well, just about everything that matters.

    Wonderful haiku:

    And out of all the friction of relationships and alternate universes, love helps, and it's okay.

    warm regards,

    Alan

    Student’s life is very relaxing life. In which a student does not have any external stress. He just has to focus on his education and he is responsible of his grooming and development.
