2017 Year Enders

Some show-showings I loved in 2017


BONUS: I’ve embedded Zach’s new album & a new music video for a song from it @ the end of his missive here, you can thank me later – ed.

below are some show-showings I loved in 2017 , and here’s a nicely translated little verse from Goethe :

Over all the hills

Is rest.

Scarce by a breath

Stirs a crest

Of one green tree.

In the wood the birds are still;

Patience, until

Peace comes to thee.
