…getting to listen to several talks from the Sydney Writers Festival this week.
…being in a crowd of people with the same agenda. To listen. To absorb. To take in.
…hearing stories of adventures and a trusty dog.
…seeing people line up in long queues, not fiddling with their phones, but intently reading while waiting instead.
…the written word on pages. As much as I love being digitally connected. There is something incredibly reaffirming to see so many people reading books. At the writers festival, if they weren’t reading, they were starting conversations that had come from books. And I’m absolutely loving that.
What have you been loving lately?
Or what have you been reading?
What wonderful adventure stories have blown your mind?
[“Often life’s pleasures pass us by simply because we don’t take a moment to focus on them… Make a point of noticing everyday something that uplifts your spirit or tickles your heart… Stop to breathe in the joy of this moment and then tell someone about it. Share your joy and revel in it. When your joy is savoured, and then shared, it is magnified…” ROBIN GRILLE]
