Taking a Break
I am feeling eager to read, but it is not feasible. At some point I had to admit that I may not be able to read or write for awhile, and that it is best to put the longing aside. So, that is what I am doing right now.
It was ambitious of me to think, after all, that I would tackle a pile of books this summer when my summer was already a tower of plans in itself. I do not have the energy to read; if I force myself to read under these circumstances, it is hasty and careless reading.
Therefore, it's official: I am going to take several weeks off from reading and writing, put aside my feelings, and catch up later. Everything will have to wait for several weeks: War and Peace, Little Women, My Antonia, The Hunger Games...even reading to the kids, The Chronicles of Narnia.
Hoping to be back sooner than later. Enjoy your summer.
