Many thanks to Cheryl Andrews for once again giving me the inspiration for this challenge!
Writing has been my escape for almost as long as I can remember. All my joys and heartbreaks, triumphs and confusion, are worked through and figured out in my journals.
If you asked for follow-up pictures from my post for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Future Tense, here’s one “from above.”

“The scissor arches, which often visitors believe to be later, modern additions were constructed from 1338-48 as an engineering solution to a very real problem. By 1313 a high tower topped by a lead covered wooden spire had been constructed but as the foundations were not stable large cracks began to appear in the tower structure. In fear of a total collapse, several attempts at internal strengthening and buttressing were made, until the famous ‘scissor arches’ were put in place by master mason William Joy as a final solution.” –Wells Cathedral Website
