This is for my dear friend Catch :iconcatch---22:
for his BIRTHDAY which WAS on February 17th!
:boogie: :w00t: :cake: :party: :music:

Catch has been such a good and especially supportive friend of mine on here for some time by now, and I'm very happy I've met someone like him here on dA. :nod:

He recently said something very specific in a comment to me regarding a recent image of mine which made me think of THIS recent image I'd taken HERE, to dedicate to him for his B-Day. :)
It was: "And this is why we get along..."
It referred to both the image/words and choice of music, too.

We both have an very strong connection to Nature, as well as music/lyrics, and the like...

And it just made me think about how the same strong feeling for something- a musical group, a political issue, a concept,
- in this case Nature-
by people, is a big reason why, of course, friendships are created. :nod:

I am happy to say Catch is a good friend I've met here on dA, plus he is such a talented Artist, too! :dance:

Please Enjoy his works:

The following song, [one of many I love by the band U2] often comes to mind when I am able to get out and be in Nature for a while, and also photograph it. :D

A Beautiful Day
by U2 [ Partial Excerpt ] Full Lyrics: :pointr: [link]

... See the world in green and blue
See China right in front of you
See the canyons broken by cloud
See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out
See the Bedouin fires at night
See the oil fields at first light
And see the bird with a leaf in her mouth
After the flood all the colors came out

It was a beautiful day
Don't let it get away
Beautiful day....

Dear Catch,
I really do appreciate your support and friendship. :aww:
Thank you for that. :hug:
I hope your birthday was great, and I'm wishing you the very best in all of your endeavors in the future! :D
Your Friend, Tea


[NOTE: I just wanted to say, in advance, how especially grateful for anyone's :+fav: I may receive for this image. :thanks::aww::rose: I am honoured that you would enjoy or think well enough of my work here, to :+fav: it. :nod: So I thank you :thanks: profusely, and from the bottom of my heart :heart: . And because I do realize time constraints all too well, I understand, if you are unable to also leave a comment. :aww: However, whichever you may do, [or even both! :omg: ] I genuinely appreciate it beyond measure. I need you to know this now, in case I'm not capable of doing individual thank-you's for :+fav:'s, which I've not been capable, or in case I cannot respond to each comment, either. Thanks for understanding. :thanks:
:love: And even if you just came to view! :eyes: I am also very HAPPY :D for this! :w00t: ]
