The Great Escape

I found this wonderful picture when I was browsing through Photobucket. To me, this represents how I feel when I read.

It’s like part of me is in the comfort of my home, in my favourite chair or under a cozy blanket, and the other part is off in another world filled with adventure and romance–whatever I am reading at the time.

Reading is truly a great escape.

But, I find writing equally as good, if not more so. It takes a whole lot longer to write a novel than to read one, so the experience is drawn out. I love that about writing. Sometimes a great book is over too quickly when I read.

So, how do you feel about reading, or writing? Can you relate to this expressive painting?
