This weekend I discovered I am not the Stark I always thought I was. I had a few hours to spare and went to one of the piers in SF to paint the bay bridge, but instead found the birds on posts to be more entertaining to me. While painting them I soon remembered that no matter how sunny it is the bay will always be freezing and I was not able to give this piece the attention that I wanted to. After barley being able to feel my hand I finally gave into defeat and admitted for the first time in a long time that it was too cold for me.
