"Like many of you, I grew up in a chaotic family. As an empath I would build little shelters and hide. Blanket forts, box forts, hay bale forts...whatever. Inside it was quiet and I was in charge. I would crawl in with a cheese sandwich and my cat and read. In this series, “Shelters”, I’m building the forts I dreamed of building when I was little." - Robin Howard
