I’m adding a new category to my blog, My Backyard Fort*. This is where I plan to stash excerpts from the journals I’ve kept over the years, misc. ramblings, etc. Whether or not they’ll be of interest to anyone else I don’t know. They need to be kept in one place for when I need easy access to them. It helps to occasionally peruse them and see how I’ve grown and healed over the years. Sometimes it doesn’t seem I’ve made any progress in either area, until I take a little stroll down memory lane in the form of reading my old writings.
The name of this category is a tribute of sorts to the backyard fort of my childhood where I spent so many hours of contentment scribbling my heart out in lined pencil tablets.
I don’t know if the entries I post here will be in chronological order; just the thought of trying to sort through them for that purpose wearies me (some writings aren’t in actual journals, but on scraps of paper, which makes such an undertaking all the more daunting.)
