Relating to Another Character
I’m rereading a book I read only a couple months ago. It was given to me by a friend after she felt “led” to do so–resisting at first the nudge, but reluctantly gave in.
I devoured it in a day–looking for the reason behind such nudges, and found some nuggets that surely have assisted in my emotional recovery and return to life again.
This time though, one chapter in, I feel drawn to the second character, and not the main in whom I easily relate. Her life, decisions, her essence–whimsical, ethereal, inspiring me to desire more than my experiences are in the present moment.
She reminds me of who I used to be.
When desires fueled my passions, and hope filled my days.
I’m excited to get to know this me again.
