As usual, this is one in a series of stops and starts in my writing and blogging world. Nothing keeps me away that’s any more exceptional than the usual stuff that keeps us all from accomplishing the many tasks on our mental do-for-me list (work, home, family, procrastination).
Of course, I aim to do better. I appreciate those of you who have hung in there with me!
It turns out that reading 26 books in 2014 was not a realistic goal for me. Oh well…all one can do is re-evaluate.
I may not be a prolific reader, but I definitely enjoyed the books that I did read. I also learned that I would rather read a classic (or a favorite) over and over again than to read something new just for the sake of adding to my reading list. More on that when I set my reading goal for 2015…
Ending this year’s reading list, I found myself lost on the journey towards Smaug’s gold. Not a bad way to end the year, in my opinion. Why had I not attempted this book before now? I do not know. What I do know, is that I have gained a new love for Middle Earth. I have ended 2014 listening to The Hobbit and will start 2015 actually reading the old fashioned paper pages of the book. Which will lead to re-watching the movies.The LotR audio books, paper books and movies will undoubtedly follow.
Not a bad way to end the year. Or start the New Year.
A wooden bench
In the middle
Of the sea
Where the world
Stops for me.
Come sit a while
Cause you feel it, too.
Can’t get there
Till I’m through.
This old bench
Is all that’s left
Of me and you.
