Being a woman who is deeply loved, and spoiled slightly, I notice that I forget that others do not have the same life as I do. I do not mean to say that I am rich in money, but I am rich in love. I have always had loving parents who have set boundaries to keep me safe, and a husband who would do anything for me. However, this week I have been reminded that not everyone lives that way.
As a school teacher, I am exposed to so many children and it breaks my heart to see so many of them suffering. I wish I could save all of them, but I know I can’t. I can only show them love and guidance while they are with me during the day.
if you are a Sci-fi fan, and you haven’t already read the Martian, you MUST! I just started it yesterday and I am hooked! I have it on audiobook and I have been listening to it while I have been painting the garage. My husband, who never reads fiction, is even enjoying it! I even caugh him LAUGHING! Gasp!
The novel has been adapted into a screen play that is set to release Nov 25, 2015! I will be there opening night!
We are experiencing one of our rare rainy days here in Arizona and I am going to take FULL advantage of it! I have my comfy blanket, my cuddly dogs, a nice fluffy pillow, and Stephen King’s Bag of Bones all laid out on the couch! I am getting ready to dive into the pages and get lost in the supernatural suspense of King’s words! I can’t wait!
Ok, I am about a fourth of the way finished with Bag of Bones, by Stephen King, and I am still loving it! I am so glad I decided to try one of King’s books, because now a whole new world of books has opened up to me! I never wanted to read a suspense novel before, because I am easily freaked out (hence the anxiety disorder). It is actually a cool experience to be reading and become physically scared! That is what I love so much about words! Just by stringing a few letters and phrases together you are able to create physical and emotional reactions! It just blows my mind every time! OH, how I love writing!
If there is ever a book genre that you haven’t checked out due to preconceived judgements, I suggest giving it a try. I had sworn off “scary” fictions, but I am thankful that I branched out of my comfort zone and tried something new! It has been a fun experience!
