Chatper 53: Have you lived?

I recently got into writing poems more again, so here is a poem that was inspired by a deep, meaningful talk on a blanket underneath the soft spring sun.

Chapter 52: How to get lucky

Who wouldn’t want to get lucky? Who doesn’t wish for a little luck in life? The key question is how does luck work and how can we make it work in our favour…

Chapter 49: Snippets from self-development

Tacky green glasses roost on her head like a giant grasshopper. She flirts awkwardly with the camera as she is half smiling, half duck-facing.
