    After a short break we returned to the room. We had time to relax, buy some popcorn and refresh the view. On the other hand, there was time to think, to clean their weapons and refine strategies. Switch off the lights. It will be a new beginning?



    No. We stopped but we returned the same, the carousel cases weekly. The words run away scared and fear of repetition of churn afflicts those who write. Until when? I ask.
