We are only what we mean to others

The inscriptions on a tombstone are only a summary of one’s life. The fraction of that person visible to all. Their true nature, on the other hand, is so often well hidden under the surface. ⅞ dives deeper into the complexity of people and their stories. In this improvised long-form, Falafel (...)
