> I've thought about revisiting my childhood books, but I'm not sure if it would be soothing (remembering the comfort they gave me as a child) or painful (remembering the reasons I was so desperate to escape). Hmmm.

I had hesitated for this very reason - and it's why I boxed the books up in the first place. It was a happy day when I found I was able to completely recall the warm and soothing feeling the stories originally gave me, right down to the dusty smell of the hallway where our bookcase was in the house, just by reading the books again. I believe that this is a gift that we're able to give ourselves as adults.

Nice to meet you, by the way, Earthmama. I am trying to post more often so I hope to know you better :-)
