Some words from video tape.

What would you write down on the first page of your diary, my dear friend? What does everyone who wants to keep reminiscences of the past usually writes down at the beginning of his or her notes?

I have been tutoring English to children and sometimes adults as well for more than three years. My private practice of that gives me a possibility to earn additionally
Have you ever been abroad yourself? As for me... I would like it to be some other day in the future, but now it´s impossible and there are many reasons for that.
I lost my father more than 22 years ago, on the 30-th of May 1975 when I was a boy of fifteen. It had been an irreplaceable loss for my Mum and me. We would have celebrated his 67-th birthday if my Dad had been with us.
There have been, are and will be a lot of different events in the life of each of us, living now, different representatives of human race, and not all are lucky in their kind will of expressing this although brief, but charming beauty of life in its current form of existance.
Let your eyes be here as well as your heart, ears, etc. Death always finds her new victims and only a handful of the matter hidden inside our heads has an opportunity of recognizing something similar, dear and familiar in the lines of a letter, poem or any other creation of human being.
