Post 21 of 30 The posts are becoming more and more dispersed due to a long weekend, evenings spend hammering hundreds of carpenter nails into the deck, or marking. But I am slowly catching up again. Story-Telling How to tell a story? So one of the things I want to achieve, but not entirely sure […]
