keep your mind young_henry ford

Some of the best time I have spent has been between two words.  While one idea exists, another can enter and create a new string of thoughts.  For me, reading is a joy, for others, they prefer a more auditory experience.

Just speaking with another person can spark a brand new idea to pursue.

In whatever way you can learn, your willingness to participate in the process, means you can always find something novel wherever you are ~ right now.

Have a wonderful week!

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “On the Edge.”

book quote anne lamott


Without a doubt, reading is the balm to my many emotions. Feeling or caring too much is never a problem when you read. You determine the timetable; the moment to open the spine is to decide how to open your heart. The moment you close a book, you close your eyes in settling the words into your mind. As you turn each page, you feel another leap in your soul because there is more to learn and your story continues. The characters are yours and shared from another who miraculously has the ability to cause to recognize yourself in a book that you never knew existed before. Even when it is returned, a book continues to walk with you, side by side, into an enhanced awareness never to be the same.

Such is the joy of reading and the preparation for it. It is a gathering of our senses – a warm cup of coffee or tea, a soft and soothing chair, sofa or bed, enough light to read but dimmed so that it does not overpower our focus on the one thing that engages us. We are drawn in and made a part of a group of other like-minded people whom we never knew existed. They welcome us and give us a seat at the banquet that reading becomes and we are never the same again.

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.
