Book and Bourbon

Light tends to go where it wants. We can try to hide from it, maybe even lose our accents in an attempt to avoid it, but good luck with that. Let's talk about feeling trapped, coming up for air and, in turn, being the air for those who need it. Also, Early Times BiB is legit. Cheers.
