In Annapolis, my old hometown, May Day means fresh flower baskets on Main Street.
Recently, someone told me that reading is not just an escape; it’s a way of avoiding reality – time could be better spent than in reading. Maybe so, or maybe reading is a type of meditation, a way to be mindless of your own issues and submerge into someone or something else.
Like meditation, the effect of reading a good book may be that you feel better, clearer, fresher – even more mindful.
But this is Lei Day and May Day – so some time could be spent with the flowers…
