Thoughts - November 27, 2016

“Just the knowledge that a good book is waiting one at the end of a long day makes that day happier.”
― Kathleen Norris
Just as a I love the morning routine of coffee, meditative thoughts, and computer time, the hour at the end of the day belongs to a cat in the lap and a "good" read. And by good, I mean a story - one that takes me anywhere, with characters who become as real as friends, filled with suspense, adventure, romance, murder, history, laughter, tears. In these days of techno everything, most authorities agree the hour before sleep should be quiet and a winding down. Watching children curl up with blankets, a favorite stuffed animal, and Grandpa (insert your own image here) reading from their favorite books is no doubt one of the happiest and contented moments imaginable. - Beth Almond Ford
