Vanya – Writer. Fighter. Good People.

Two friends sit in a park venting.   It’s one of the few blocks that stayed the same in this gentrified world.  It’s the best of friends that can just sit with you and process the complexities of life and family in what just might be the “end’ times (that give birth to new beginnings). […]
