Heritage buildings may not be known for their cozy interiors when it’s cold outside.
Sitting, working, freezing.
Those who shake my hand are freeze dried, frozen upright.
Odd that people I’ve known for years, who never cared to touch me in any way are reaching out, needing to make contact.
They chill. A subtle tremor is evident.
And they are thinking, I’ve known her all these years and I had no idea she was so Brrrrr cold.
It would probably go better if I shut the window.
