Re: GSBN:literature for TLS / GSBN


I read Goethe but after paging through Bauen met Ballen I found a new, very
earthy inspiration so Wedig is the name to keep in mind. The direct earthy
style of the titile, with an extra dimension in the Dutch language, reflects
on the contents. No talk its all walk.
