Everybody Sleeps

Years ago, it feels like forever now, I wasn't the kind person I am now. I was quite opposite. I did unsavoury things for unsavoury people, and I had a reputation of being very self destructive and for being afraid of no one. People would ask me how I could possibly be so unafraid despite...

Mirrors

'You know, I looked at my face in the mirror this morning, and I like being old. My face has more content and when I train in the gym now, I am not training to be strong or handsome - just better than I was yesterday. These days the race is just against myself.' Jean-Claude... Continue Reading →
