forty: fortress

like pocketbrit, i also thought of this word in terms of fortifying oneself against the world…walling up your heart, staying safe. edifying all of it, to keep from crumbling, to protect yourself from erosion. to keep others out, and to hold yourself in.

except it just makes me so fucking sad, too.
