often im lucky to have treasured weekends like these. hours of reading in the sunshine. on the courtyard, back patio, out in the grove, on the beach. i recently finished Peony In Love and enjoyed it much to my surprise. im not a romance story girl, but weave in ancient china, ghosts life & love in the afterworld...now i'm interested. the girls and i had not to soon before studied ancient china so i found it very fitting and even more relevant.
i just began reading While I Was Gone and for some reason im hooked. i spent three sunny straight hours reading it out on the courtyard sunday. getting closer to the characters...identifying. refilling my cup of chai over and over. im now almost half way thru. im truly appreciative for days like these. i have developed a deeper love of reading as a form of meditation and soulfood. and we all know mama's definately need these times of escape. a short time in full immersion of somewhere else someone else...eventhough we are exactly in the place we are supposed to be.
*read any good books lately?
