I finished my 100th fiction reread today! For books 99 and 100, I picked the two most influential books of my childhood: Bambi and The Forgotten Door. Most influental chapter books, that is, leaving aside picture books like The Lorax and The Little House.

     So The Forgotten Door was book 100. A short book, though the story didn't seem terribly short to a 7-8 year old. I just love it, and I love it as much now as I did as a kid. The beauty, sorrow, and longing of the ending and that last line has haunted me for what feels my whole life.

     I'm also very pleased to have made enough progress on Night-Wind that she's ready to take her stance on my Triune page. As it is, I won't put her up until Mountain-Frost is ready to join her...but it feels so good to be here after weeks and weeks of toilsome preparation.
