A rather foggy scene in the gateway to the wooded location of a grizzly m****r in 1926.
james gardener was a local farmer who was supposedly set to become very wealthy after the discovery of ancient burial mounds in one of his few fields, heard to contain incredibly rare and scientifically valuable artifacts and treasures. one evening he didn't return home to his wife after working the farm, which was totally out of the ordinary. worried sick after the passing of the following day, she assembled a search party to look for him. it took 3 days before their hounds finally came upon something of interest, buried beneath the old and somewhat disused barn. can you tell that i'm making all of this up yet? because i am. it's just a gateway and some fog. no real story behind this one, sorry.
I walked into a room and told my story today, to 3 strangers. i couldn’t look anyone in the eye, so i fixated on these paintings. they will forever hold a significance in my life.
i went to my first addiction recovery meeting today. and it won’t be my last.
Just finished: coming clean by kimberly rae miller. 4 out of 5 stars. this is a fascinating memoir about growing up with two parents who are hoarders. the author was exposed to unimaginable conditions and the book details how these conditions affected and continue to affect her. she also does a great job at humanizing her parents; showing that they are more than just their condition. she highlights the complex love and anger she has for them. an easy, interesting read. it sometimes felt a little choppy (but i feel like most memoirs run into this problem.) #comingclean#memior#bookrecommendations#bookreviews#unreadshelfproject2018#bookstagram#books#igreads
