Reading is Fundamental

I'm a bit of a nerd in that I enjoy reading (and I don't mean magazines although, I enjoy the pretty pictures). I falter, however, because it can take me what seems like forever to finish one. This is most likely due to my lack of focus. I pick up one, read a little, put it down, and pick up another until I've either gotten through them all or forgotten with which I left off. So, I suppose I prefer the term "rotational reader." (Yeah, I like the way that sounds!) I seldom read one book the whole way through but I have some vague memory of reading a book in one sitting a couple times when I was a youngster. But I'm a woman now and I don't have time for that. I prefer the spice and everything nice that comes with diversity. Once my mind has settled into one story, I like to jumpstart it by beginning another. It keeps me sharp and as I ponder this thought, I've realized that this in fact, might be my philosophy on life.
My life is a series of story lines, characters, and plots that although seemingly unrelated share one thing--ME. So, if you don't get it, just keep reading. It will begin to make sense one day or you'll eventually forget where you left off and then, it won't matter. So, just keep reading!


It's in these moments when the creative juices are flowing that I feel most alive. I'd been feeling so uninspired as of late and I'm still a bit withdrawn but I'm coming out! That's reason enough for me to celebrate with a post. It's funny how people and (unseen) forces may try but (as much as I hate to be cliche') "this joy I got, the World didn't give it and the World can't take it away." These are my (God-given) gifts and you can't have them. I may choose to share every now and again but they belong to me just the same. Oh, and they are not for sale. Money is funny anyway. So, what are you going to do now?

You may as well sit back and enjoy the ride because this is going to be good. I promise, you won't be disappointed. You may be wondering what exactly I mean but...That's for me to know and you to find out. (Shoot! I'm being cliche' again, aren't I?)
