Trying to go without reading was nearly impossible.
I managed to make it a few days with less reading than usual.
-Reading is part of my job. Had to read those delicious childrens stories with the amazing and beautiful illustrations in them.
-I found myself in a hospital waiting room without a book.
My daughter was there for a procedure.
Panic! So I read People magazine and Smithsonian.
Oh and the newspaper was there, so I read the gardening section. Found out I can plant carrots and squash now and they'll be ready for Thanksgiving.
-Didn't read any blogs....that was the single most reading I gave up.
Reading less did free up some time for me to quietly feel the stirrings of my heart.
Some insights arose that may have been hidden underneath all of those words I read regularly. Reading is an escape and there are places in me that I do not want to escape from. Now that they have been identified. I can nurture those special places
and then read!
This task is finished.
Going to visit blogs now.
See you soon!
