After 60+ years and 1,755 miles, I don't remember much about growing up in the yellow house with brown trim. It was very small for six of us, and built around 1850. There was a swing, red roses, clotheslines, and tadpoles. It took 6 1/2 years of EMDR to dig up these few memories.
My 2020 book is printed and due any day, so this is for my 2021 book. I still have C-PTSD and no fond memories growing up, and no photos except the one on my tricycle when I was four.
