I Am Myself Again
I think you might have to know lyrics to Blue Rodeo songs to catch that reference, but no matter. Tonight, for the first time in years, literally years, I finished a book in one sitting. This is something I used to be able to do with barely a ruffle; two small children and various life folderol have obviously thrown a wrench in that phenomenon. Over the last few years, I would find myself sitting like a zombie on the couch after the dinner/bath/bed routine was done, staring at something inane on television, usually while trawling mindlessly through various websites; certainly I had also been in contact with the real world through IM or email at the same time, but for some reason, I simply could not bestir myself to actually sit down with a book before the standard pre-bedtime reading ritual that must be the last to go.
It didn't hurt that tonight's novelty was an iconic page turner of a book; still, I can't help but feel that some not quite missing, but certainly set aside part of me has finally come back. I really don't know how long this will last, but for now...for now it feels pretty good.
