Peek into my Journal

Tonight, I’m sharing from my journal these words written a long time ago as I recalled my childhood home on Banner Mountain.

I sat on the bed in my wall-papered room with its bare floors and one narrow window. I looked out at the warm night and there along the garden fence, I saw the colorful hollyhocks that grew tall and stood still as a shadow in the moonlight.
