I just came from a rather..energising meditation session. Now I do not partake in this activity regularly. It has not yet become part of my daily routine, but after today’s session; it absolutely will have to be crammed in there somewhere.

A Little Life Update: Play-Time, The National Youth Theatre & Poland

I know, I’ve been a bad blogger. In the blogging world, leaving your blog unattended for over two whole weeks is a big no-no.
