March Reading Reflections

My reading these days is both pleasure and therapy. I am enjoying the time spent immersed in my books, and feel I actually need that time away from the constantly distressing news-of-the-day. Right now, I am choosing books that are not too sad or stressful. I appreciate more than ever the really good writers. Their words are like balm, an antidote to the ugly rhetoric we are surrounded by these days. If I sound like I am complaining about the state of our nation/world… well, I am. It all bothers me a lot, and I do my part to participate in our democracy in positive and hopeful ways. But exposure to the daily ugliness takes a toll, so I choose to surround myself with as much beauty, kindness, humor, and uplifting words, as possible. My February/March reading reflects my need for escape, for humor, for fun, for perspective, for beauty, and for kindness.
