searching for the perfect reading spot
It isn't always easy finding just the right spot to plop down and open a book. Sometimes we have to rework a place we've used for quite a long while. Rather that is adding a blanket during the winter, or a pillow in the evenings, a little adjustment can make all the difference.
For me, right now, it is a comfy quilt and a spot in front of our furnace vent. Every now and again I get a burst of hot air that I can capture under my quilt. All the while taking in Stephen King's Hearts in Atlantis or Jerry Oppenheimer's Front Row.
Many people that know me well know that I spend many of my workday lunches at the library. It is a place I have known since I was a child and each time I am there it brings a sense of tranquility to my soul. The smell of the stairwell, the second floor nooks to review books, the oversize section on the balcony, areas I like to hide as if I have stepped back to my childhood.
I actually wish that I had taken the time to go to the library today (but I do have plenty to read already). I hope everyone is enjoying their Thanksgiving break and taking some time to relax and reminisce.
