A spoonful of sugar …

Hello dear friends. Well, what started as a regular kind of monthly journal has become something very different this month. We truly hope you are well, wherever you are and send our thoughts to you in the world.

You don’t have to be good at anything in particular or do everything at once, but what isContinue reading “What are we doing?”
