"I feel all thin, sort of stretched, if you know what I mean: like butter that has been scraped over too much bread."
- Bilbo Baggins from The Fellowship of the Ring by J. R. R. Tolkien
It's raining today. Everyone walks differently when it's raining, like they are carrying the world on their shoulders. We wrap up warm whilst still wearing jandals wishing for that warm summer weather to return (but cursing the heat when it's with us...we don't know what we want but we can't win...it's just easier to blame and curse the weather).
