There is a woman drifting in the deep.

Her eyes are closed, her limbs loose and floating. Fish dart in and out of her hair. Many-armed things probe her face with curious curls.

When she feels the sunlight rippling across her face, she is weary because it is about to begin again.

My manager has been asleep all morning -- he must've had a long night, poor beast. He only just woke up -- howling, from a dream.

So today's manager lesson is that it's okay to rest when you need it.

I'm a guest on The Reading Life!

Perhaps you would consider reading my book where the bad guys aren't all that bad -- they just live in an underground crypt raising the dead and making plans for world-domination they'll never enact.
