Artists and time

Posted on April 10, 2015 at 8:23am 0 Comments

 I just wrote this on my personal blog. If anybody can relate to artists and our very unique rhythm and timing, feel free to follow the link, read and leave comments.  It's quite a long writing, which is why I am not posting in it directly on this side. 


Be Blessed and enjoy the weekend.

Exploring the site with a smile on my face

Posted on April 1, 2015 at 12:19pm 5 Comments

I love it here, so I will definitely be staying.
