Somewhere Between

It is January and on this day the air is crisp and startling – sky so blue it threatens to engulf the world. Even as I sit within walls and type these words, the light spills in – nearly blinding my left eye. The light spills in, regardless of my tired and soggy state. I am like this flower – somewhere between: wilting from the fatigue of recent blooming, the light almost too much in my bruised and faded stillness. I want to retreat into the kinder shadows, retreat from demanding revelations, avoid the intensity of the world’s insistent gaze.

    Retreat. You know exactly what’s best, what you need, what you must have. Retreat sounds perfect to me.

    Right… What else is there when you are an old camelia with a bad cold?
