Reading on the couch
It is so pleasurable stretching out on the couch, opening a good book and reading. To read is to nourish and feed the mind and the soul. Reading in the morning is a way to ease into the day and reading in the evening is a way to reward yourself for a day well lived. Getting some blankets to lie under and feeling their warmth is a comfort like none other. I do not crave the harried life lived at a frenetic pace. I want the contemplative life. One of observation, good decisions, meditation, and prayer.
