That's lovely. It sounds like a genuinely safe place where Little Ricky would have felt "safe to be me". My place was up a huge tree, and as an adult in therapy I sometimes would look out at this enormous tree in the courtyard (Oxford) and imagine myself up that tree! \:\)

Much love,

Nobody living can ever stop me
As I go walking my freedom highway.
Nobody living can make me turn back:
This land was made for you and me.
(Woody Guthrie)
