It’s an exciting Friday night in the Destrebecq house.
I am sitting at the kitchen island with a work book and pen in hand, and my husband is taking apart the hot water heater. (The kids are asleep)
As I sit here reading, I realize that I am actually not doing much reading. I am following bread crumbs (and now writing about it.)
In my reading, I stumbled upon a poet that I had never heard of, so I looked him up.
I found a website where he reads some of his poems, so I pressed play and listened to a few.
Then, I copied the link and sent it to my co-host at Healing Circles Global because we often use poetry to spark our sharing.
After that, I went to the library to see if they had any of the poet’s books, and put one on hold.
From there, I went to Amazon to get an excerpt of said book for while I wait, only to realize it was a compilation of many poets and not solely his work.
Which put me down another path to find a book of his work, which I eventually did. It’s not available at the library, though.
Eventually, I got back to my book and my pen.
Now I am here with you.
So was I distracting myself, or making connections and following bread crumbs?
Was I reading deeper?
