I didn’t know renewing my passion would feel this great.
I was looking for my paperback copy of Catcher in the Rye by JD Salinger this morning. This classic has been my favorite since I first read it back in 2002. I’ve read it a hundred times, most especially during the lowest times of my life where angst and anger are pretty much the same. In the most weird way, this book – which is nothing near a romance of sort – has helped me get by and move on from previous heart breaks. But I can’t seem to find the book.
After not feeling well for exactly a week now, I figured it might do me good if I renew my passion for reading. The last novel I finished was from few months ago, The White Queen by Philippa Gregory. After that, I can’t seem to find any more time to read.
Yesterday I got Mitch Albom’s books – Tuesdays with Morrie and Have a Little Faith – from Powerbooks Trinoma. I have finished the former in one sitting, over breakfast this morning. Yes I just read Tuesdays with Morrie and I wished I read it before. What I think about the book deserves a separate post.
So during the recent days that I had series of deep contemplation, I figured what I needed to do: read more and write more. I’d like to be the artistic person that I was before, only I wish to do better this time.
