Is Everybody Studying & Reading?
Many are getting the chance to get caught up on subjects they've been wanting to explore, and that's a very good thing. I tend to read about six or seven books at once - no kidding. I read a chapter or two in one and have to digest something a bit different - like sampling morsels from a party plate: a little bit o' this and a little bit o' that! As I finish one I add another to the pile. Eventually they move through "the system" and get spit out the other side. Another thing I do is write all in the book, underlining and making snide comments in the margins if I disagree, or "right on - correct" if I do. Sometimes there's a sketch or a face. I have many different versions of "faces": of course the smiley face, but I have the frowny face, confused face and angry face too. I pity the person who borrows one of my books and comes across this stuff. Then they'll know the truth - what my family and friends have known all along. I'll be exposed: he's truly "touched."
Currently, my reading "pile" consists of everything from paranormal Encyclopedias to books on Wicca, Tarot, Ghost Science, the Catholic doctrine of purgatory and the Ritual Romanum. I think I need something a little lighter to peruse. Maybe I can dig out one of my old comic books...
