what's up?

forth and back twice

uiuiui… it has been a while since I’ve been posting here. Amazing how time goes by. What so far did not go by: Our autumn here. It was frighteningly warm and dry. Bone dry. And way too warm and yes: I enjoyed it every day when biking to the factory; the factory where there are […]

what's up?

a smile when boxes are out of my way
