It's a bit of a hazy and extremely humid Monday in beautiful Corfu Greece. Its the type of sky that tells you a storm is on the way and one that is sure to last a few days.

There is an ache within every cell of my body, from the little toes on the edge of my feet, to the little fingers on the edge of my hands, to the ends of each strand of hair across the vast expanse that is my skin. The pleasant tingle of creation continues long after the final period is punched...
