Winter's Skin

Winter spreads silver skin over lake blood, weaving the shores together in a smooth, crystal scab

    And I hope your new job is going well...Don't over-work yourself now. I know what that mental and physical exhaustion feels like for sure. Right around the first of August, I'll start working 7 days a week for 12-36 hours at a time, and won't have a day off until the end of November...if I post during that time, it's likely to be some weird stuff...ha
