End of holidays
Again snow on the last day of my holidays, so I met a friend for a winter-walk through the park in town. We had a great discussion about the pros and cons of writing. I nearly missed that appointment, because of reading and writing. It´s fascinating how time can flee when I read something interesting...then sometimes it´s hard to switch from fiction to real life within one second, to hurry to a meeting with the character´s problems in mind-
but that´s reading;-)
...we couldn´t agree in one point- is it pro or contra writing if someone gets lost in time and space because of words??
The best of a book is not the thought which it contains, but the thought which it suggests;
just as the charm of music dwells not in the tones but in the echoes of our hearts.
~ Oliver Wendell Holmes ~
