Livin' the dream with hakuna matata!

Days the World Stops Turning

1 Comment

Books are so much more than pieces of cardboard, paper, and ink. They’re portals to worlds that we can’t visit. We can be anything we want to be for a few hours, lost in a place that the author and your own mind create. Maybe for some of you reading a book is more of a chore than anything else, but obviously you haven’t ever read a good book. When I read a book I become Katniss Everdeen, Tris Prior, Elizabeth Bennet, Scout Finch, Ester, and Anne Shirley. When I was little I WAS Laura Ingalls Wilder no one would ever tell me differently.

2007 096

It waassss a wake up call when I realized that ole Laura died 42 years before I was born. Understandably I was feeling a lil depressed for a few days…

Fail

But I finally moved onto bigger and better things…

Katniss Everdeen

I am Katniss Everdeen.

Juuuusssttt kidding, couldn’t hit a squirrel even if it was already dead.

But a person can dream.

I guess it depends on the person but for me, the characters in my books are my heroes, the people I aspire to be like.

Have a great weekend!

Hakuna Matata,

Ciao Baby!
