Finding Stillness - Reading

Finding Stillness is a series of blog posts on ways I find stillness without meditation. The previous installments are on knittingmusic, walking and doodling.

I love to read, have been an avid reader ever since I learned how to. 

I love to lose myself in worlds other writers create for me, and, in reading I find stillness, even though my eyes fill my mind with words. 

When I read I am there, for the full 10000%. I am not distracted by anything, my focus is fully on the words on my page. 

And that is not a common thing for me, my mind usually is all over the place, especially now I am editing a novel. 

To lose myself in words that I didn't write is a treat, and I love it. So much. 

And, as I breathe in and out, turning the pages, I am calm and centered, my breath flows easily, unobstructed, unnoticed. 

Just me, a book and a great cup of tea, I can't think of anything more beautiful than that :)
