My name is Shelly Johnson, and I am a writer and philosopher with a Ph.D. in philosophy. One of my primary personal and philosophical interests is how we can learn to love ourselves and each other better in order to cultivate personal and political resilience. I teach ethics and a variety of other courses at a local college. I am the author of the blog Love is Stronger. I am also the author of three logic and critical thinking books for high school and middle school: _Argument Builder_, _Discovery of Deduction_ (co-author), and _Everyday Debate_, published by Classical Academic Press. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

How fun!!! Go you!!
It has been a really fun day :).
I love this idea! My dens have always been more obvious: sofa or bed, but surrounded by a little stack of books and a cup of tea. Everyone seems to be rethinking their space in our house, though. We have all had a good clean and clear out, and are rearranging what we treasure. Maybe because the seasons are changing and we are looking forward to time spent indoors.
I think that is exactly right, Ali! I had such a marvelous time in outdoor space this summer. And now I am playing around with my indoor space. It feels so cozy and peaceful.
Love this Shelly – a timely word! Thanks.
I’m so glad you found it timely, Sean. I really like your writing. Keep on going!
I love the poem, thanks very much for the encouragement! Sometimes it sure is hard to kick all those negative voices out! A grown-up fort might help, I should really give that a try because it looks like a blast
Ah so awesome! Now I want to go find that joyful child in me and ask her what would she want – loved your fort!!
It’s such a wonderful fort!
Awe I love this. What a great idea and I always loved my childhood forts. Definitely a must do and I wish I saw this earlier. Next day at home I will so do it. Thank you dear friend. Xo
This brings back memories of the countless blanket forts my kids used to build. Why haven’t I ever thought of escaping from the world under coziness with a flashlight and book. Not a bad idea at all.
It has been so fun for me to build and use this fort, Ali! Grown-ups really need time to play and get in touch with their child nature. I think it can be healing and freeing to us.
