In from the Cold...

I don't know why, but this image of a man I had come across sometime ago is not leaving my mind...There was something very peculiar about him, he was always wearing a coat, even at the height of the summer heat. A friend of his told me that X always felt cold, even in the scorching sun...He sought much medical advice for his condition and no specialist could find an organic reason for his hypothermia.

I later on, found out more about X. He has had a very rough life...torture, exile, poverty, illness but above all loneliness...Since, he has always been feeling cold...and unable to part with the only skin he had left - his old wollen coat.
