The Treachery of Salt
If the iron has entered your soul, be warned: the saltsting of life, the harsh and crystallized barbs of the world will rust it without mercy.
NaCls a funny thing. It can preserve; it can destroy. Packed densely enough around flesh it will draw off liquid, dry that flesh, freezing it, so to speak, for the future.
But carried in air or borne in water it corrodes the sternest iron relentlessly. Best keep your resolve unjacketed in metal, the better to be sure that when you need it it wont flake away brittle, useless leaving you defenseless in the coming storm. 2013 RC deWinter
A doorknob and locks on an old beach cabana rust in the salt air of the sea.
