Retreat

Books are my retreat. Words linked and crafted together to create incredible stories never fail to amaze me.  Worlds that I can effortlessly fall in to and become part of are my favorite places to be. I have been a part of more fictional worlds than I can count and for as long as I can remember. It’s not that I don’t enjoy real life, it’s just that reading is something I always look forward to- even if it’s the last five minutes before I close my eyes to sleep. Life isn’t always good, in fact many times it’s quite trying. Reading is my retreat from all of the surrounding nonsense. The older I get the more nonsense I seem to notice, or maybe I’m just becoming a bitch. Who knows and honestly I don’t really care. So, each day I will finish working, tidy the house, start some laundry, and then hopefully get to sit and feast my eyes upon some good words.

“People say that life is the thing, but I prefer reading.”

– Logan Pearsall Smith
