my skin

My skin doesn’t react well to sun exposure. I break out in freckles of all colors, shapes, and sizes. I took this picture a few minutes ago – after having been swimming for half an hour from 11:30 until noon this morning – and this is normal reaction when I’m wearing 50spf sunblock. Some of these freckles will fade, but most of them will be with me for the rest of my life.

Appalachian gothic fiction writer - my works reflect a love of literature flavored by the darkness and magic residing in these ancient mountains. In my spare time, I'm a Simmer, I tumbl, I journal, but I always have a very strange sense of humor. I have lived away from the mountains and lived deep in the mountains. I currently live in Central Kentucky with my lifepartner and his cat. The mountains, their culture, their superstitions, their particular magics, will always be in my blood.
