2014

2014 was complicated. Not bad, not particularly hard, just very confusing. Nothing came in easily, people did not speak candidly, plans needed serious adjustments, challenges, like distant relatives, outstayed their welcome and produced unnecessary destructions. A year full of books, modern art, travel, calculated risks and reflection.
