Reading; a passion which allows one to escape reality and experience a thousand lives while living one’s own story. But not only through books can we read, we can read into people’s lives, stranger’s lives, imagining their unique circumstances. Amazing stories that would be worth writing but will never see the light.
Why are some of us so taken to reading books as well as lives? Perhaps it’s our secret hunger to connect, and experience, at least for a while, those other stories we don’t get to live. We pop in and out, and if we are lucky, are forever changed and touched.
Read on if you want to live a thousand lives and escape through them, your own. And read on too, simply to survive and find hidden between the lines a hint of hope.
