Already had my glass of wine, and in bed before 9:30 on a Friday night…but there’s some silver lining here; going to try to write some!
“Gonna try to write something,” I told Mike, the other half. “Escape from the shit in the world for a while.”
Isn’t that the case most of the time, though?
When the world gets too much, or when it’s just not enough, we disappear into the fictional one for an adventure, a distraction that gets us out of this dysfunctional funk we find ourselves in half the time.
Maybe this is why I also love Children’s Literature. There’s always an adventure, always something to be learned but usually a positive outcome in the end.
And we could all use a happy ending, every once and awhile.
