love, life, and the pursuit of liberation
More than I live to write, I live to read. As a child, I could NOT go to the bathroom (yes #2 , lol) without taking something to read be it a book, the back of a toothpaste tube, SOMETHING. I was also that kid that lost hours absorbed in encyclopedias. We had the whole leather-esque Encyclopedia Brittanica set with the gold-edged tissue thin pages. I still remember the smell. I used to create research projects for myself, just to have a chance to revel in what I loved best– reading and writing. I remember encouraging my best friend at the time to write a research paper with me on Christianity. Let’s just say that she was not moved.
As an adult, I find that my love of going deep in random topics has not waned. The knowledge served me well during my audition on Jeopardy.
So with all that said, here’s a sample of the random reading that I’ve done today. Read away or just shake your head at the little people that live in my brain.
