Hi Cate, this picture reminds me of something I wrote once when I was going through a very emotionally charged time.

'My skin is as thin
as the thinnest of skins
on a thin-skinned thing'

I always planned to find a picture of peeling bark to illustrate it but never got around to it!

Enjoy your misty and your golden days,

I remember writing letters on birch bark in summer camp. I can't remember if it was found or peeled--I sure hope it was found.

We have a birch in our yard. I love it with all of it's ribbons and tatters. :)
