Most of the anniversaries that I keep track of are ones that are important to only me. 3 June: moved to Berlin the 1st time. 29 August: moved to Paris and was supposed to move to Iceland. 16 October stands out as a long standing freindiversary and coincidentally the day of the collapse of my … Continue reading Anniversaries are small things
