4 The Sun On My Palm – Peterborough, ON, 2016
The Sun On My Palm was written in Peterborough, ON. It was an incredibly hot day when I took the cover photo. I remember that I was only able to sit in the sun for a few minutes because the sun was so searing. The Sun On My Palm was written during some intense freelance work when I was producing a lot, but unable to share with my fans. Ghostwriting sucks. Download The Sun On My Palm here.
