Read Me A Story
Just by looking at Greta and her doll, you can see that she thinks reading is fun. Reading to children helps to light that candle within. Once the candle burns it may flicker and at times almost go out, but it is there and ready to flame up when needed.
I am reading a book I ordered myself for my birthday. The mothers in the memoir are readers. Through generations of known women they read for pleasure. Seeing others read is a fan for the flame of one's candle. Being read to by someone who enjoys reading adds fuel to one's inner flame, but I believe much of the ability is innate. I am really happy that I can entertain myself by reading. Surely, tv is not going to fill that void. News now is let me cram this down you throat until you throw up. Everything is excess. I guess my excess is loving to read.
