A Book and a Pillow

September 26, 2019

I’m a snob about literature

and have discovered so many good reads lately..

The Great Alone, Where the Crawdads Sing, My Absolute Darling, Harry’s Trees, All the Light We Cannot See, Wild, The Book Lady of Troublesome Creek..

The themes seem to blend -and the characters -between reads

all speaking in my head their truths.

many coming of age books about young women

their suffering and strength

I read on my left side, the bedside light illuminating as I quickly turn the pages


starved for more

my head on the pillow

It’s a wonder I don’t have callouses

Books, stories, words are miracles

taking us into worlds we otherwise would not know

I am happy on my bed, good book in hand

A great way to spend retirement

Time to go home, snuggle in, and read!
