Week 202

It’s an absolute­ly gor­geous sum­mer day out­side. One of the first of the year, in fact. Sun may not be note­wor­thy in your part of the world, but this is the Nether­lands so it total­ly is. You can imag­ine the willpow­er it takes for me to stay inside and write this. Any­way, on to what […]
