Back in December I finally got to see the movie Maria on Callas, a documentary that recounts Maria Callas's life based on her own interviews and the interviews of people who knew her.

Soms zit ik te denken: hoe zou ik met simpele aanpassingen wat duurzamer kunnen leven? Minder vlees eten, nooit plastic tasjes aannemen, zelf een drinkfles meenemen, vaker de trein pakken… En: wasbare wattenschijfjes gebruiken!

così come per combattere avversari o nemici,
le doti più importanti sono il sangue freddo e la presenza di spiri... Read more of this blog post »
And we’re back to the classics. So far on this podcast, Kate and I have tackled only one William Steig (Sylvester and the Magic Pebble).

I ended 2018 exhausted.
How’s that for an opening line, eh?
