Today, I am grateful for reading.
I am currently reading a couple of books, my goal is a chapter a day.
I am starting Fight Like Hell: The Untold History of American Labor by Kim Kelly.
I am a few chapters in to The 1619 Project created by Nikole Hannah-Jones.
I am going to be rereading Quiet Power: The Secret Strengths of Introverted Kids by Susan Cain.
I am listening to an audiobook of The World and All That It Holds: A Novel by Aleksander Hemon.
All of this is what reading is.
Rereading. Audiobooks. A chapter a day or not.
I know that my understanding of American History, World History, Psychology, life, work, play, relationships, learning, growing, children, friends, traveling, war, food, Government, language, reading, enviromental justice, all improved when I started reading.
Reading is addicting. When I decide that I am going to sit and read, I want that feeling of being able to pick up something or listen to something that tranfers my mind and spirit to the places the authors want me to go. I know that the writers are painting a picture with their words but I am creating what these scenes look like and how the characters are moving and talking. It really a magical, nonreplicatable, feeling.
Now, after writing this, I am going to go read to start my day!
