Nine Stories About Love

‘It was night time and everybody was fast asleep. Apart from one boy who was reading a book. The dark, thought the boy, seems to be made specially for reading stories.’
- Excerpt from 'Nine Stories about Love'

Meet the man who felt full of rain, the little girl who found a bird, the watering can who didn’t know what love was. Let yourself be guided on a poetic journey through a map of stories that explore love and connection to each other and the world around us.

Please note that this is a new work in the final stages of development.
