Cozying Up To A Good Book.

As Earl and I get ready for our trip to Disney on Sunday, I’m thinking of bringing a book or two along just so I can sit down and read for a bit. Let my mind escape and my imagination wander. Being February, the parks at Disney close early, so I’m sure we’ll have plenty of down time.

I usually have two books going at once; a computer science instructional or educational book (I’m currently learning how to program in ‘C’) and something new-age-ish; the latest book by psychic Sylvia Browne, discussions of various aspects of spirituality, wicca, paganism, etc. I rarely sit down to read and enjoy it, unfortunately, I usually sit down to read and learn. Perhaps I work to hard to at reading.

I think I’m going to dig out my copy of “The Demu Trilogy” by F M Busby. It’s my favorite book of all time and I’ve read it at least 30 times over the past 25 years, but it’s been a while since I last took a look. It’s funny how my perceptions of the book change as I grow older, but I still find new nuances and passages on every read; things that I had never noticed before.

So as we escape to Disney, I’m looking forward to escaping into setting the computer aside and escaping into a book as well.
