Just a quick one to let you know I’m back from yet another wonderful holiday break. Once again, I encountered many fascinating creatures, and once I’ve sorted all the pics, I will post some of the best ones here.
Musically, it was rather bleak… I didn’t listen to as much as I intended to. It’s quite nice to enjoy some peace and quiet from time to time, just relaxing and listening to the sound of music.

If I’ve wetted your appetite now, I highly recommend that you check out the full album; you won’t regret. There’s also a ton of remixes (as always, some good, some bad) out there, a lot of them on this blog here. It’s safe to say that we will hear a lot more from Marina and her Diamonds in the future!
