Like everyone, I started the year with good intentions. I was going to do better in school, read more, write more, eat less junk … And just like with everyone my motivation and hope began to fade after a little while. But today I’ve decided to not give up and to start enjoying the journey.

Money makes the world go round. Cabernet already knew it in 1960 and I’ve seen more and more that it really is the case. But shouldn’t it be love or understanding that makes the world go round?Read More »
