Today I’ve started reading again. Mostly, I just want to live in someone else’s world for a little bit. This world isn’t ideal right now, so I’ve headed for fiction as escapism.
Right now I’m in the world of Vonnegut’s Cat’s Cradle. I remember just before Christmas I bought myself a load of new books from a cozy used books store I found in my town, and then I never finished reading any of them because I got low-key kinda obsessed with playing chess. Oops.
But for today, fiction. Vonnegut’s books are always slightly silly and surreal, but are often just an alternate way of looking at reality. And that’s kinda what I need right now. Also, his writing is just beautiful and effortless and addicting.
Until tomorrow, and so now I’m going to get back to it.
