Some books are like a safe place where you know you can take refuge when you have had enough of the world and you need a hiding place to catch your breath and free yourself from the senseless frenzy of a life that almost never lives up to the expectations you had. Reading is seclusion, sheltering, isolating oneself from the rest, healing oneself from wounds that would find it difficult to heal if exposed to light. To read is to stay closed there, in the silence that cloaks you while everything out there is useless noise. I have always enjoyed reading very much. Books open up a world of possibilities, they open your mind. They catapult you to distant places, while you are comfortably seated in your home. They isolate you from the rest of the world. They rock you. They heal you. Yes, because when we are sick, books can be therapeutic. In those written lines we find our history, our pain. We no longer feel alone. The author of the book knows perfectly well what we are talking about, but above all he knows perfectly well what we are feeling: in the world there is another person who has suffered and experienced what I am suffering and experiencing now.

    Yes, I will definitely agree with you on what you say. Reading, the world of the book, is a bright, creative world. And of course safe. I love reading, which is an integral part of my life.
    Have a nice day Fairy Queen.
