Pins and Neatness

(low) hanging fruits (of our labour) Sometimes, words fall short. Sometimes, they fail to sum up emotions. This is one of those times. The lead up to the exhibition opening this weekend had drained me; both physically and mentally. In the weeks leading up, I’d poured so much into it, …
