Drink deeply from the well of life

‘The first time I witnessed the orange glow of dusk from my Brussels apartment, 20 years ago, I realised Belgium would forever be my home,’ says Jon Echanove from Tervuren.

Taking his first steps as an author in recent years, Echanove’s debut novel chronicles the story of a man who forsakes his familiar world and ultimately discovers both self-discovery and love. Are you concerned about the world your children are growing up in? ‘I see a world in transition, where new power blocs are emerging and social media and artificial intelligence are driving significant shifts. The future is uncertain, but life is short. So, always remember to live life to the fullest!’
