Isn’t it wonderful how books can open your eyes and mind to a whole new world?
With the changing of the season, when temperatures are declining and sunlight seems so sparse, I have followed my urge to escape into some books. (Which you might have noticed from previous posts.)
The urge comes and goes, ebbs and flows, depending on the season, or how I am feeling.
When everything seems just a little too harsh, a little too sharp, delving into another world, sometimes helps me to breathe a little easier and a little deeper. It sort of seems like I put myself in some sort of time-out. Almost like I’m recharging my inner world so I can cope better with the outside one.
It is also a balancing act.
Some days or weeks I would rather just stay inside a fictional world than have to cope with reality.
And that is where I’m at for the last couple of days. Thinking, feeling and trying to put my thoughts in this post, has made me come to this realization. A lot of words have come up this screen and have been erased…
The most important part however, is that I have managed to shed some light in the murky waters. I recognize where I was headed. And It is not where I want to end up.
That is all the ‘feely-things’ for now…
All my best,
