Lucy is better. Hooray! I spent much of yesterday in my recliner with Lucy in my lap, reading. Once again, books helped me escape my problems.
Most of life’s difficulties must be met head-on, and action taken. Once I’ve done all that I can do to solve a problem, I find that reading allows me to relax and helps me keep my perspective. Yesterday I had done what I could for my dog: I took her to the vet, I gave her medicine, I soothed her. Having done all that, it was good to lose myself in a well-written novel.
