I used to read a lot, in the time before I became a widow. Since losing Mick, I can't keep my focus long enough to stay awake and read. I have found that I can listen to books on tape, while driving, and did a fair amount of that for awhile. I love fantasy and science fiction, and I agree that they give you an "escape" of sorts, taking you out of your current reality and into another world, temporarily. I am also a writer, and have long considered writing a novel. Still waiting for that "perfect" time, and am realizing that there is no perfect time...

I still think of you, Mick...every SINGLE day!

I would like to pipe in as a former avid reader, as well.  I have only manage to read one book in the last year, since my Kenneth died.  Part of it is a lack of concentration, and part of it is a lack of time.  Trying to do it all, along with my own medical issues, leaves me too busy and too tired to be able to sit and read.  I really miss books.

Thank you, my dearest Kenneth, for loving me and for giving me the best 13 years of my life.
