That must be why I love to read. My life is way too busy for a single gal with no man, no children, no pets. It comprises a lot of work (of which I'm thankful for, even on the craziest of days) and lot of service and activity with my church (which I also am grateful to have in my life). But between those two things and the daily tasks of life - cleaning, laundry, bill-paying - finding a quiet time to curl up with a book is a challenge. Thank goodness for my Kindle that I have with me wherever I go. I'm able to pop it open at a moment's notice and read in small spurts as I have the time.
A couple of weeks ago, I was at the salon getting my hair done. I was sitting there reading my latest book, extremely engrossed in the storyline set in Italy, that a co-worker came up to me and I almost didn't hear her. She also being a reader completely understood my absorption. Getting lost in a book...whether in the midst of a busy salon or in the quiet of my home is a journey I love to take.
