Consumption Experiment – Day Four
Morning started off with Yoga. On the transport I pondered a few art projects with the indigenous tribes, possible marketing exposure to the film projects, and a personal project painting my family.
Book in hand, BOOZEHOUND and wishes to review Green is the New Red today on my other site.
