I love to read, have been an avid reader ever since I learned how to.

I love to lose myself in worlds other writers create for me, and, in reading, I find stillness, even though my eyes fill my mind with words.

When I read I am there, for the full 10000%. I am not distracted by anything, my focus is fully on the words on my page.

And that is not a common thing for me, my mind usually is all over the place, especially now I am editing a novel.

To lose myself in words that I didn't write is a treat, and I love it. So much.

And, as I breathe in and out, turning the pages, I am calm and centred, my breath flows easily, unobstructed, unnoticed.

Just me, a book and a great cup of tea, I can't think of anything more beautiful than that :)
