Forever Dark

Top 3 atc around the worldJoin us over at Forever Dark Challenge.  It is a monthly challenge with great prizes!  Come on…do it!

I know quite a few people that get migraines.  And, I always thought I just got headaches.  Turns out my headaches are more likely migraines.  I have only had a few that completely laid me out and made breathing and light difficult…thankfully!

When I started thinking about what this image might be…I was thinking about a head on a rack being stretched.  OUCH!  To show that I cut the image, but then as I was putting it together with the background I was imagining less of a rack and more how being on a head rack would feel.  Hence, the headache!
