June 29, 2018 How ice forms.

A couple of days ago I cnouuntered my first ever wall of ice from Cynthia. I hope it does not infectt the rest of her world.

That I'm tangled up in MY  blues, is not new news.

My back pack is packed and I'm ready to go, But there is nobody  who calls me their own.

I'm just another Rolling Stone.Lost and alone without a home.

The tgings that I want, you just can't steal.

Thry've got to be given to be got.

I'm lost and alone withothout a home. Just another Rolling Tome. There's nobody I can call my own.
