More > teardrop”……You refuse to give up, he “descends to will’s white forge, thug-tough.” The child of Cameron James’ long, checkered affair with the run, Run To A Colored Sun surprises and delights us with more than a year’s worth of daily verses that candidly mirror our own struggles, joy, passion and failures.
