There are times when we have no choices. In these times, whether it is a job, or a location or a crazy relationship I find sanctuary in books. The pressure and stress can make me feel like a bear with its leg caught in a trap. I would not be able to write in this blog without books. Robert Jordan brought us together. I hope someone can find solace in his words. He writes much clearer and finer than I ever will. The limitations of talent are something I have come to terms with. There ma never be a full novel within me. That's o.k.. I have other avenues to pursue.
Have you ever been so wrapped up in the stories that having to stop is gut wrenching? They help us get by. They help me get by.
I will look around my workplace during break time or at a coffee shop and I will see everyone absorbed in their phones. I do the same with books. But every time I start reading someone usually has to comment or ask about it. The best thing I can do is just promote the Wot or whatever I am reading.
