Excuse me, again, for the poor construction of this blog post. This time I'm writing it on an iPad, though, so I'm moving up in the world! XD
Today when I sat down to write this post, I stared blankly at the title bar. I haven't had any profound thoughts today, nor had I really thought much at all since I've been so sick. Not that I've been in complete pain or vomiting up my lungs or anything, just sick so that I was in just enough pain, and just enough discomfort. I could barely focus on my favorite magazine. THAT is how sick I was.
So, the idea popped into my head that I would do a short, ill-formed post on how much I adore literature.
Now, when I say literature. I mean any thing that I can read that isn't on the back if a cereal box. (not that I don't appreciate the little things on the back of cereal boxes - they often brighten my day.)
Today, although sick, I thought about reading. I read as well, but mostly I couldn't do that, so I thought about it. I recently finished a delightful little book which I immediately wanted to read again. It was everything that I needed- relatively light, with a touch of dark stuff. Romance and adorable characters. Country towns and authors. Tea! Honestly, it made me realise how much I love reading. And how much I MISS...england. I've been there once and I loved it. I miss Bath most of all. It is honestly one of the most darling little towns, filled with cobblestones and old buildings wedged between shopfronts.
I adore all kinds of reading. Today I wanted to read books, but couldn't. I did, however, manage to read a few articles in my favorite magazine (frankie magazine - please witness the lovely here) and an article in the economist on psychoanalysis. This all reminded me how much I adore these past times. The written word gives me occasion to disappear into a different world, to be inspired, to feel new things. I have read several books on reading itself, and they give me much enjoyment too.
And now, since I think I have expended today's allocated brain juice, I will head to bed. And hopefully, sleep. After some reading. ^_^
~tomorrow I'll do my Personal Ad post. Bear with me!
