April 2023

April.  April is different.   April is the month that bridges the gap between the long haul of winter and the fine downward slope towards summer.  April is the sweetest of all.  April is the energy we need.  April is life.  So, put out your hand and touch the hand of April.  Feel it and breath it,  April is here!

Man weiß ja nie.  Sylvia und ihre Hunde. Eine wunderbare Geschichte.
