Story & Experience

When wondering which wounded place is calling today,the recently burned down main grocery store/supermarket in the center of our little village came to mind. There had been much unhappiness about the services of the shop.The fire came as a shock.
I met the owner of the property before I went on to the now cleaned up site, and I also spoke to other villagers here about what kind of rebuild is envisaged,also what changes would be welcome.
May the new beginnings bring joy for all and Earth!
