You're there, and I don't say anything. My eyes are caught, unmoving, staring into that palpable, infinite middle distance. I wonder if you can see it, too. I wonder if you can feel it. It's an empty void, circling, transfixing, never-ending and boundless, and absolutely frozen— chapping my lips before I can make a sound— it burns at the touch. I dream of my thoughts chiseling through that icy space and reaching you, and maybe, if only just a little, it warms that emptiness. And maybe it melts a bit, too.
Oh, My Word! It’s a summertime-strawberry-ice-cream-melting state-of-mind kind of day. Jacob hopes you are staying refreshed and healthy out there!
