Just… life (as it should be)

Some time ago, I was asked to work for a theatre festival in Italy.

We stopped to ask for directions two or three times, with local people being very kind to us and pointing us to other people who should have known more, but nobody could point us to the right place. What we were looking for was the track on dirt that … Continue reading Running encounters
