Some habits we hold onto forever, and some come and go. I love reading. I love writing. And each day I will dedicate time to do both in some form or fashion. When I was away on vacation, Every night I would climb into bed around 10:00 and curl up with a good book. I would write in my journal at least every other day documenting what we did. Since then, I have yet to pick up a book unless it was to read a title, and my journal is tossed in basket in my office.
Life has been extremely busy since we returned, but I miss the ritual of putting pen to paper and turning pages. When searching for photographs for this post, I was reminded of all the times I would pull a book or notebook out of my purse wherever I happened to be... while I was waiting for an appointment, sitting on a park bench in the middle of the city, or while I was in my car waiting to pick my girls up from school.
Sometimes I get into a reading slump. I'll walk into a bookstore and feel overwhelmed by the titles and leave without a thing. A very rare occurrence for me.
So what habit have you let die, or at least let go of for a time?
And what are you reading?
