Kai Loma Roolz

I was very lucky to grow up in a curious household. After my folks divorced I lived with my grandmother, my mother, my aunt, three brothers, and three cousins. My grandfather was there too, but he was retired from both his job and the world. He mostly painted and read. In my memories he is sort…
