i am a reader,
i read all the time.
i read like a starving wolf,
looking for something lost in the dark.
as i walk through the house
carry books in the car in case a meeting is postponed or there is a major delay on the freeway
i prop books up while loading the dishwasher,. folding laundry, waiting for web pages to load
this obsession isn’t new, but it’s taken on a new life
i read rather than sleep anymore
the words not fully making their way to my brain
but necessary all the same.
