Giorno # Eterno

I can’t think of words to describe the gratitude inside me for you who have generously blessed my walk on Via Francigena. I don’t want to name you here one after another because I will miss out someone and because I hold you all closely to my heart. Thank you. Merci beaucoup. Grazie Mille. I…

Giorno #83.2 Drawings

《Disegni: Drawings》 The best outcome of sleeping in the classroom last night was a sketch I did. Today on the way I did another one. Hope you like them. (9 August 2018)
