i lost myself in a book today.  still with a sick one, so he sat on my lap watching Sesame Street (still not too old for Sesame Street-joy!)  and i read.  and i read and i read and i read. and i got to finish it! It was like a bonus to the gift of enjoyment of the new plan for my day.

Here’s my favorite quote from the book:

“Everyone needs to be transformed, to forget one’s woes, if only for an evening,” Henry Ray said.  “That’s what the theater does.  And so they leave refreshed, the lowly and the royal, refitted to perform their tasks anew.  It is the essence of art.” (p.338 of What Once We Loved by Jane Kirkpatrick)

the gift of story. 

art provided against the woe’s of life.

if only for a moment.

it’s one of my favorite provisions.
