[Title]

Seeing a chameleon continuously changing its colours is such an awesome sight to experience. To little children this is nothing more than a fun affair, but as you grow older everything about the chameleon starts to make sense.

The Challenge With Writing On Sand - Verbal Agreements

[Title]

For those who have visited the desert areas and experienced sand dunes, they probably have seen how the shapes and arrangements of these sand dunes quickly change as soon as the wind blows over them. Some have been to the beach and probably wrote names of their loved ones in the sand on the shoreline, to great disappointment when the great waves wash the beach, the names are erased in a huff. No inscription remains on the sand, as if there never was.
