it had been five months since any outing (with the exception of a couple of medical appointments i only just made it to). and i could feel my soul withering with every extra day that passed. i felt that if i didn't escape the house something inside me was going to die...and so i escaped. and payed for it - bigtime. but at least i got to see this magical sight, the amazing light thrown by approaching dark stormy skies on a river still as glass.
