Crib notes

In telling the ‘events’ surrounding my experience of assault, I’ve flitted backwards and forwards in time. It’s just how the re-telling has unfolded, certain things that have needed to come out before others.

However I realise that’s a little confusing if you’re trying to get a handle on what the heck I’m talking about!

  1. Good morning, Svasti! Your blog was found indirectly with Facebook and is new to this reader. Looking forward to reading more.

  2. @David Rice – thanks for dropping in! How weird – my blog being found via Facebook? I don’t advertise my blog at all, I’m just a member of a few blog promotion sites. So, welcome :)

  3. Are you the same person who once had a blog called Desert Book Chick? The Australian part matches….and I found this blog by Googling “Desert Book Chick.”
