Where I’ve Been, Soleimani, and Solace

I thought you were all deserving of an explanation. I said, “I’m back,” and since then there’s been little further. As well as the other posts I previously mentioned, I’m now trying to write a Proper Post about the Iran situation, but it’s going slowly.

Heck describes the filming thus: Norway 8K shows the wild landscapes of Norway in ultra high resolution. From the coastal peaks of the Lofoten and Senja Islands to the fjords and highlands of southern Norway... read more
