About “A Light Fade” 

He wakes up and already is assailed with thoughts of the growing list of things he needs to get done. His anxiety and stress over responsibilities build as he is working his way through his morning rituals and tasks. Today he will not let the burden of his own thoughts and doubts get in the way of making it to one of his favorite places to relax and temporarily let go of the list of things that still need to get done.  A car ride and a short walk will get him to the rock, the epicenter of his self-indulgence.
