What is the meaning behind the words? What's the moral of the story? You know, the theme - what does it all mean? Which theme is in all the stories? Can I answer that? Do I really know?

But the story will (read: most likely) be published in September. Enjoy! Scene 6 The internet search didn’t produce the results Hella expected. The records in the Titles … Continue reading Scene 6 – The Old Woman & the Mad Horse
