This is going to be quite long post, mostly because of 1,5k short story I’m sharing today. I’m still working with my thriller Sophia von X… I may need one more week before I’ll hit ‘send’ and leave it to proofreading team.

#takeawaykeys from the book of Elle Luna “The Crossroads of Should and Must: find and follow your passion” Picasso said about his life and work “It’s not what an artist does that counts, but what he IS.” What he did was what he was.
