Have you ever been bored? What did that feel like? It’s a feeling I experience only rarely. Like when listening to a dull speaker.
For the most part, I don’t have time to be bored. My time is filled with family and friends and writing. And if I do have moments of time in between those things, like waiting in the doctor’s office or eating a meal by myself, I read. Books have been part of my life since I was a small child.
These days, I eat most of my meals at our kitchen table with my husband, but if he isn’t around, I have a book handy. I have eaten meals during the battle of Gettysburg or on the wild prairie or watching two soul mates search for and find each other.
I always, always have a book close by. And I never eat alone.
