Joy and peace rest in the simple things: a book, mystery, hike thru the woods, ocean, song, poem, red balloon, rainy sidewalk, sparkly lights, evening snow

Woman reading. New York Public Library, 1944

book notes by raincookieArt

Something amazing happens when the rest of the world is sleeping. I am glued to my chair. I forget that I ever wanted to do anything but write. The crowded city, the crowded apartment, and the crowded calendar suddenly seem spacious. Three or four hours pass in a moment; I have no idea what time it is, because I never check the clock. If I chose to listen, I could hear the swish of taxis bound for downtown bars or the soft saxophone riffs that drift from a neighbor’s window...Anne Fadiman
