Maybe tomorrow, maybe next year

Last night, I set up a new set of floating shelves in my kitchen. Then, I cried.

Presenting: Masha Davidov

Masha Davidov, born in Tel Aviv in 1991, is the daughter of professional pianists and naturally had a musical education from an early age. Although she subsequently switched to the visual arts as her abilities began to show, Davidov never abandoned her musical studies  – she plays the piano and violin.

A Scottish Girl in Sarajevo

Sarajevo meant a lot to me, means a lot to me still, my time there has shaped me, in fact. Everything I took for granted, every dream I was realizing; all painful laborious struggles. The warmth of every hearth I was drawn beside, every silently proffered plate of food; a realization of some eternal purities. Nastavi čitati “A Scottish Girl in Sarajevo”
