It included the line "the truth is always more important than its side effects", I still really like that line, it must be by far my favourite line from all the songs i wrote in those days :) I'll leave the interpretation of that line up to you... let me just say that now, a couple of years later, I still don't know if i agree with that line. :P On dA I put this song in spiritual poetry, but i could have easily put it in (auto)biographies as well. Though seen from a spiritual point of view, it's the story of my life... well, of a big part of it, anyway. Inspired by `3wyl, one of our many inspirational conversations reminded me of the mentioned line, and of the question.... is the line true? :P (Besides one of the most important one to me personally, it's also been one of my most successful pieces, winning first place in a contest and being quoted a lot around dA) Also found in the /Lit group.

So a few months later (last week) I rewrote this part, and i added lyrics to the middle 8 as well. I really like how that turned out :) Soo I hope you like it as well :D (Received 2 art dedications and an article dedication - see link above) Yey - first 'official' lit piece on shadowness =) Also found in the /Lit group.

He took the picture, with me as the model, but we came up with the idea together. No post-processing whatsoever.

I took many more after that, most of them on the same day, but this one is still my favourite. :) This was in Ostia Antica, the ancient sea harbour town of Rome.
