Old socks, books and me

My friend calls me ‘wacky’, in an affectionate sort of way I think (cringe).
Why because my mind works in strange ways, she’s referring to my post Self Conflict & Mortality.
It’s not like I see dead people right ? It must be all that reading I keep doing, that is stored somewhere in my mind and throws up bits from time to time for me to chomp on. But this is me and I am comfortable exploring it.

I have always been a quiet, thinking sort of person. And yet I married a total opposite who is loud and crass. Well they say love is blind and your brain is dead too for the duration. Ah, but to have a child, nothing compares to that experience and nothing changes you more. ahh but...I digress.

Old habits die hard, I don’t stay grounded by the kids all the time.
Perhaps that is my mind’s coping mechanism to get away from the everyday problem that won’t go away today. We all have ‘old socks’ that we hang on to comfortably, mine is books, escape into fantasy or into non-fictional preponderance.
Just give me a (good)book and I’d be oblivious if the world fell apart around me, that’s why I only read when I’m not with the kids and often overshoot my station on my way to work.
Everyone has a comfort zone, what's yours?


  1. It would definately be music.. the kind you find in my blog. Big voice, full orchestra, violins, or soft and soulful sounds. As I listen to the music my mind sets different stages. My way of day-dreaming and de-stressing. God Bless u and the kids

  2. I look forward to reading the rest of your blog; I like to garden to keep my sanity. lol. please visit my blog

  3. Digging in the dirt is one way I wind down and reconnect with God....I also love cranking out some Third Day or Casting Crowns while I am cleaning my house. OH, and then when I clean my barn, I have some great conversations with Him. I guess I like to have my "time" with Him as much as I is the only time when the crazy busy world around me stands still.

    Happy I popped by this morning! Great post. :)

    What would that above be ?. Just passing through, yes we all have comfort zones and we can have crazy moments of thought.

  6. You can assume I am dead if I have a good book in my hand... The one I am reading now is by Echart Tolle 'Power of now'
