lost in my own thoughts.

my. where did the time go? i've been reading. and working. and reading. it's cold and i wore a turtle neck sweater for the first time this fall. the quiet has made it easier to listen to my heart and to others. it feels good.

today i found this quote on a card:
"be yourself; everyone else is already taken." ~oscar wilde

i bought eat, pray, love by elizabeth gilbert at a bookstore today. i've read more children's books in the past week than i did during my entire childhood. half of them make me cry. life has returned to center. and i hope it remains that way for just a little bit longer.

That book really resonated with me. Thanks for sharing the Wilde quote. Your prose is beautiful. xo

What a fine blog. Yes, Oscar Wilde nailed it.

I just made a list of children's books I think I need to read (from the Globe and Mail book section). These days, anything true and simple seems to affect me.

Do you know what is funny? On your blog I feel like I should use my quiet "Library Voice".

I think that should make you feel darn proud.

:D

I don't think anyone read to me as a child. I have one memory of a book being read and it was Grimms fairy tales by a babysitter.

I love reading to ethan and Maggie. I love getting to get in touch with (and partly heal) my inner child.
It is freezing in my house. I love it!

i love the thought of using my/your quiet library voice!

you've now recommended two books i will be on the lookout for.

ps my opinion is you deserve happiness, wealth and abundance in whatever form suits you. !!
