Mini-Journal 14 - 01

Mini-Journal 14 - 01

During this pandemic I found it harder and harder to read.  I could not concentrate on novels.  I would start one and put it down and start again and so forth.  In November I decided that I had to read two chapters each day.  I could not get up until I was finished with one chapter and later in the day I would read the second chapter.  It worked.  Now I can read again and my mind does not wander like it did.  I have read the following seven novels in about ten weeks.

The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley

A Time for Mercy by John Grisham

Fortune and Glory by Janet Evanovich

Memorial by Bryan Washington

Dancing in the Mosque by Homeria Qaderi

The Return by Nicholas Sparks

How to Raise an Elephant by Alexander McCall Smith

I enjoyed each of them and they are all quite different.

I love your lady, something about the pose and expression.
And it all blends so well with your background.

I love all of these you have been posting the pattern is so wonderful and as always terrific compositions!Glad you can read again- I understand what you talked about. My focus is short these days unless it is working on art then I can go for hours.

You told me about your way back in to reading.
So I am trying it. Half way through my first book in four years!
Coincidence with the political state, maybe. But I am managing two chapters a day. Thanks John.
First book?
Non fiction story of the last real hermit.
Stranger in the Woods by Michael Finkel.
Suitable story of aloneness and survival. Very good.
Thanks John.
