I tore this quote out of Oprah's magazine several years ago; it seemed important to keep. Now that I have read it again, I realize that for me - it means my blog. That's my "little back shop".
What else do I have that is untouched by others (except when I allow it to be, by posting photos or other's writings)? My blog does allow true freedom to write whatever I want, and to divulge as much or as little as I wish. What truer freedom is there?
What about you? Is your blog your "little back shop" too?
