Modern Art Orchestra - Circular

Lifetime is a tricky thing. Sometimes you realize how quickly it passes only through a sudden flash of the mind, when one morning you wake up noticing that you are simply no longer the person you used to be. When I encountered this shocking experience a couple of years ago, I could not help seeing things from a different perspective: things like childhood or adulthood, being serious or having fun, playing or working. - BMCRecords.hu
