Q: How do I buy more Spotlights? I'm new to the site, and I've actually already bought some, but I've forgotten how to do it!

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

Imagine ... walking along a deserted beach. You spot this young lady in the distance, and wonder why her hair and clothing are wet.

Drawing nearer, while she plays along the water's edge, your attention is captured by an almost childlike innocence in her manner. Curiosity now piqued, you study her intently as you continue toward her. Eventually close enough to clearly see the detail in her face, you become aware how truly beautiful she is.

Perhaps this was the moment you fell in love with her?
