This week, I found something back that I’d thought was gone: to be lost
in a story. The last days, I found myself in another time and another country,
far away from here. Now and then I woke up as if from a trance, because there
was coffee to be poured, or food that had to be cooked – but I was only half
in this world. In my mind, I galloped with daring knights or I sailed on a boat
on a lake where – behind the mists – Avalon waited for me.
I was Druid, Goddess, Knight and Minstrel.
Sorry dear ones, I wasn’t in this world.
I sat in the Spring sun and I read.
I got a tan without noticing it, and I found a long-lost treasure:
to travel to other times and places and be gone from this world.
I am back to the one I once was – a reader.
Reading was a big part of me that I had lost and now it’s back
and I feel complete again!
Here’s the evildoer:
Don’t be afraid – I have not forgotten you.
I left my book downstairs on the table.
It’s Friday, and as a faithful and brave knight – I won’t forsake you.
Here are some list-pages!
