Friday Philosophy…Escapism

The events of this week have hit rather close to home: geographically and emotionally. San Bernardino is not far from us, and I have friends who work within the Regional Center on a semi-regular basis. I have absolutely nothing to contribute to the discussion of these events. I’ve been attempting to hop off of that sudden 24 hour news cycle.

So, escapism.

I’ve always been an avid reader, and I will be reading and enjoying cookies with the family – Happy National Cookie Day, by the way – shortly. 🙂

“Each book was a world unto itself, and in it I took refuge.” ~ Alberto Manguel

“We don’t create a fantasy world to escape reality, we create it to be able to stay.” ~ Lynda Barry

“You can close your eyes to reality, but not to memories.” ~ Stanislaw Jerzy Lec

Short tonight.

Blessings and comfort and peace to you all.

Never give up. Just recharge once in a while. xoxox
