2020 – en epilog

Smid et tæppe af en global epidemi over verdens befolkningen, og tilføj nogle pyntepuder af civil urolighed, økonomisk ødelæggelse og social distancering og du har en menneskehed med store, store problemer. Vi kommer aldrig “over” 2020.

Hvorfor ikke bare kører, Maria?

Det var faktisk min mor, der satte tanken i hovedet på mig. Jeg havde bestilt en auto transport til Toyotaen til den “nette” pris af $1150.

I found a studio!

Last week I went for a walk around the neighborhood of Forest Hills, NY to think, relax and look for ‘For Rent’ signs. Some of the houses in Forest Hills are almost mansion-like, big beautiful houses, crazy expensive. Then, I saw a ‘For Sale’ sign. I thought to myself, what if I could buy? Then… Continue reading I found a studio!
