Another Year (or so) in Review: Tomorrow, Today

31/01/2019

Sometimes I think in the midst of writing resolutions and starving ourselves for the newest fad diets at the start of the year, we forget about those little moments, what those bits and pieces look like when tethered together just tight enough.
