Title: Re: How can I show the best of myself?
Preview: I use sunglasses for when it's possibly going to rain or in the winter. when the sky is white that hurts my eyes more than sunlight, so Carol there are some other's like you!

Title: Re: How can I show the best of myself?

I wonder if I am someone different then?Cheers,
