    1. Thank you very much. Resilience and hope are a formidable force in the human spirit. The title was inspired by my numb hands taking the photos and the words by the stark wintery day. I think I can finally feel my fingers and I hope you enjoy your weekend!

    1. Thank you! I keep adjusting what I wear each time I go out with the camera, but I haven’t found the right combination to keep warm and prevent my fingers from going numb. I’m glad you enjoyed this and the bleak cold I was trying to convey reached you through the words and photo.
