DISPATCH | Talking to strangers

“For my entire life, I have lived by the saying, ‘Don’t speak unless spoken to.’ But the past two months of talking to strangers have allowed me to learn, empathize, and connect with others in a way that I would never have experienced otherwise.”

DISPATCH | Summer At Last

The sun sets later day by day in the southern hemisphere.
