Blinds and Hammock

The abandoned hammock at the backyard beckons me to step out into the broad day light. But I think I know better than to let a mere sight of a worn out hammock bring me out of the den. That’s what I’ve been telling myself for the past 2 years, that I could resist its…

Chad – The Protector
