books by eudora welty

Reading is the one journey where you take one step and travel lifetimes. You can discover the world from the center of your bed and have all of the attention of characters focused solely on you.

It relaxes, it coaxes, it soothes, and it strengthens. Fear and doubt can be washed away in a few pages. Close the book, and you can feel your soul expand and your chest rise with an enlarged beating heart. There are so many books and authors, yet, reading is the one obsession that we do not tire of. Rather, it grows with our indulgences and seeks out even more.

An appreciation for reading and writing is what propels us to begin sharing our stories. The scope and reach is so large that even when our own world becomes too small, the universe awaits us, embraces us, and shelters us in the cocoon of words once more.

Today, I headed to the library to collect what was waiting for me ~ 12 books and a “Sherlock” DVD starring Benedict Cumberbatch (yes, “I am Sherlocked”).

Twelve books!?! I could hardly carry them. I brought them over to the info desk and asked if they could have the dates extended.

The head librarian came over to see if she could help.

I explained that these many books would be wonderful and could be finished within three weeks if I did not have a full time job.

You mean your other life?” she said with a smile.

“No. My other life interferes with my reading!” I replied.

The truth is finally set free.

book happiness

“Every book, every volume you see here,

has a soul.  The soul of the person who wrote it

and of those who read it and lived and dreamed

with it.  Every time a book changes hands, every

time someone runs his eyes down its pages, its

Spirit grows and strengthens.

My diary is a mirror telling the story of a dreamer who, a long, long time ago went through life the way one reads a book.
