This picture is to share, but also a visual to help me stay on course. I have a lot of reading and catching up to do. I've had a lot going on this year that has inhibited me from completing tasks and obligations.
Hopefully, I'm coming out of the storm and will have to deal with rain every now and then. I am speaking about my health. I currently wear bifocals where before I just wore reading glasses. My brain is okay somedays and others, not so great. I get discouraged and my reviews have suffered. Well, the absence of them. I'm determined to keep writing. My writing may not ever be the same as prior to 2013, but it's the new me and I have to get comfortable with it.
I've found a home on Booklikes. I've been on Goodreads for many years and still utilize it as a place to log my library, but home it isn't. The 14 people who consistently have my back on here keep me inspired and I love the interaction of all the post and comments. My discomfort with my inability to write, as I used to, has made me shy away from posting on here. I want to be more active. I can be more active. I love to read. I used to love to write.
Starting today I will not hold myself back from a community of ladies and men that I have grown to like and appreciate. I find comfort in their comments and posts. I am thankful for Booklikes and those of you who come on here to share your love of books, reading, writing and people. Bless you all and thank you!

Very happy to listen to a talk by A C Grayling.
He talked about being kind, and the use of stories and important of literature.
He also said that human interaction is important for the self. That's kind of saying interacting with important for human brain development. That's true for language development.
And to be kind. Treat other people like a painting and put them in a "good light".
Also, if one asked what the person's most interested in, you would get a brilliant answer even if this person might not share interest with you in other areas.
So be kind.
He is also a proud atheist.
During the question and answer session. Someone ask him why he is a militant atheist, and he said there is no such thing. There is no such thing as a "militant non stamp collector.
