The Lichen Man | A.L. Kersel In the mid-winter half-light, I crawl on my belly through a courtyard of statues. The snow is claggy and sticks to the fur on my chest. I sniff the air-pine, cinders, wet earth. Not much else. Not these days. The musk of a fox.

FICTION: Anatomy of a Musician by A.L. Kersel -

The Institute is prestigious and stretches skywards accordingly, white walls and grey slate against pebbles and shorn grass, on one side a bramble twist of bracken, on the other, the sea.
