No matter our age, we will eventually find ourselves
having to deal with negative emotions in our lives.
Our work, our family, our friends can spark
such emotions, but the source of these emotions
lies within us, awaiting the choices we make.
Once we have worn ourselves out
with frustration, pessimism, and impatience,
all those negative feelings start to slowly slough off,
and a small light twinkling in the distance
offers us the courage to move forward.
I will read forever because it lets me visit in my mind the worlds that I will never be able to see; it helps me put away the stresses of the day and relax into the rhythm of the story before me; it lets me bring to the surface and experience without regrets those feelings I hide away; it lets me re-experience the thrill of first love through someone else's eyes; it keeps my mind juiced so that it will never desert me; it is always there for me even when there's no one else. I will read forever no matter whether it is print or digital because the words will always call to me. ~ A Sassy Scribbler
