There are books I go to when I don’t want any more of the place I’m somehow stuck in and I long for a lighter and brighter world. They make me feel as if I’ve just had a drink of a particularly sparkling Champagne. ~Mary Gordon
But then again, your lives are likely as topsy turvy as mine. Seems everyone’s is, these days.
Last night, after a horribly long day filled with one too many frustrations, I finally came home to a hot bubble bath and an hour curled in bed with my book. Within a few moments, I could feel myself relax as I was whisked into the world the author created. I was able to forget the aggravations and concerns of the day, and settle my mind into another plane before I drifted off to sleep.
Reading is such a treasure, isn’t it? Whatever would we do without it?
