Open to a world of possibility, the reader curls up, absorbed. So many have come before, like a vast landscape mapping the course of life.
The reader chooses the road she will travel based on a vast library, accumulated over a lifetime.
Words allow her to gaze through a window, revealing that which would normally remain hidden, sometimes concealed by the outside world, other times tucked deep away within herself.
Caught up, she forgets herself, escapes in these precious moments. A mind undressed, nothing comes between her and the voice she attentively listens to with each passing chapter.
Here, the reader has space to think and feel and question, to dream and discover and explore, to cry, to spontaneously laugh aloud. The reader knows this to be a gift; quieting the busyness of the chaotic modern world.
And as she quenches her thirst and drifts off to sleep, the reader grows.
