Bookin’ It. 2016-01-16

BooksWho doesn’t love books? A good book is literally Chicken Soup for the Soul. A book is filled with pages of promise. Promise to let our imaginations go on a journey to a place of deep thinking; a trip through history; dark places of the soul; inspiration and motivation, thrilling adventures; science fiction of tomorrow, places we only dream of visiting; and fascinating people we’ve never met. Pictures of the mind masterfully woven by skilled wordsmiths with lofty goals of sharing their thoughts, dreams, hopes, wishes, fantasy, politics, science, history, children stories, nonsense, humor, how-to’s, mysteries, religion, or whatever their mind’s-eye can conceive. The possibilities are simply endless.

After cave drawings, as a people, we evolved first from verbal utterances to formulated language. Language advanced to scratching out letters conveying those selected words. They then began the process of stringing letters into groups of descriptive text, evolving into a powerful synergy of knowledge and exchange of ideas as we know it today. Storytelling is one of the greatest gifts to ever grace our world. It has taken many forms from books to magazines, newspapers,  flyers, pamphlets, email, smart phones, and tablets. Storytelling has also added the rich layer of verbal transmission of thought through radio waves and then the visual mediums of television and movies we know today.

Books are wondrous gems of the progressive unfolding  of language and storytelling.  If you haven’t delved into a good book lately, it’s time to go back to your roots of loving to read with no other agenda than immersing yourself into another space and time. Not Dick and Jane for school or instructional manuals for work or newspapers for current events or for your children’s bedtime stories, but reading just for the pleasure of reading. Feed your curiosities; let your imagination run wild. Of course, it usually takes me awhile to get through a good read because I normally fall asleep after a page or two; but go forth and read your hearts out, kids! … Sandy
