Today’s […]

getting out of routine, watching the sky

When in Russia, I had the chance to get out of the factory routine, and the daily business of facebook and messages and formula and stocking up and writing down things that need to get done. Refreshing! The next week of getting out of routine will be in a month from now: I will be […]
