Last week a reader, Tim, posted a link to this article written by Matt Ritchel for the New York Times. Lessons in the Art of Pillow Fort Construction. It is a great article if you have time to read through it and love forts as much as we do.

My favorite quote “But maybe the experience isn’t about togetherness. Maybe it’s about letting go. Sure, I may have a few months, maybe years, to collaborate. I’ll show them things. I’ll initiate. But then I’ll have to let them have their home inside our home, apart from us.”
