I’ve always thought this to be true. Afterall "Witches can be right, Giants can be good; you decide what’s right, you decide what’s good."
can be such a solitary, lonely activity, but sometimes, when a book strikes me at the right moment, in the right place, I feel more connected to humanity than at any other time in my life.
It’s like someone’s smiling over my shoulder, or holding my hand, or kissing my forehead. The comfort in gesture, in love and affection. In community. In hope.
That’s what reading feels like, and it makes me less afraid.
[strike out my addition. because I don’t agree that reading is lonely - it is everything else written above.]
