Hush. I’m mourning.

I see your woolen jumper folded neatly in the corner of my wardrobe. So soft to touch and still fragrant with your scent. The bitterness of coffee meets the salty flavor of an ocean breeze. My eyes tell the tale of longing and missing your every word, your every embrace. Where have you gone? Where Read More

I Got You Babe

Dear Dad

Alive With Theatre

Beep beep, went my phone. “Ciao. Let’s meet at Piazza Castello at 5pm, between the two horses,” said the message I received from Claudio. “Si.
