Rant

As you've noticed, I've been making more time to write here. Stealing minutes here and there (as Julia Cameron suggests in The Right To Write) really works.

Let it grow

While we are spending more and more time dreaming about our new home, and especially the prospect of being closer to nature, we still do enjoy our balcony. Especially now that the plants are growing more and more, and you can see a change every day. … and I wonder how far they will make … Continue reading Let it grow
