The End of Incubator.

After considerable thought I’ve decided to mark a completion to Incubator and embark on the next chapter in my journey – one that I call Territories: It’s very clear now that what I have been going through can be best described as a “valley”, although the period (2007-2010) can be described in both the positive and [...]
