New Year's resolution 2019

I spent time with my nephew and niece who seriously played hard during the New Year's holidays. I gained plenty of energy playing with them.

A young model from North Carolina, a MTA worker, a woman who works at a law firm, an accountant, a young bartender who dreams of becoming an illustrator, a dentist and so on. Every play differs from person to person. One is aggressively playing offence as if killing with a bowgun. One is carefully playing in the defensive style in order to let his opponent make mistakes. The ball soars up into the air and a man pounces on the ball to seal hi
