Look there she goes, that girl is so peculiar
I wonder if she’s feeling well
With a dreamy, far-off look
And her nose stuck in a book
What a puzzle to the rest of us is Belle
Oh, isn’t this amazing?– Belle, Beauty and The Beast
It’s my favorite part because you’ll see
Here’s where she meets Prince Charming
But she won’t discover that it’s him ’til chapter three!
I always loved to read and ever since I was a little girl, I dreamed of having a library full of books. One of my first memories is of me at my grandfather’s dacha (Russian for a country house) walking to a shady spot under a tree with a book in one hand and my pet German Shephard Rex in the other. Once we arrived at our “secret” spot, Rex and I would nestle under the pendulous tree branch with my back supported by the trunk and Rex’s body curled by my feet. I’d open to the last page where I left off and start to read out loud.
Books served more than an escape for me. It was a way to feel my emotions in their truest form … raw, unorganized, and untethered … and without . I didn’t have to hide my tears or conceal my laughter when I read; I was free to be myself.
Today, I read to feed my soul as it evolves. Growth is what I’m after so I’m always reading or listening to self-development and New Age books and these are the books that you will mostly find here. I hope they guide you on your journey as they did on mine!
