Girlfriends and Good Books

I like my life

If I didn’t, I would change it 

There are things in this world that make my good life even better

… and help to make the sometimes, not-so-good, bearable

1. Girlfriends

I’d have to put girlfriends right at the top of that ‘Life is Good’ list

No matter what’s going on, good or bad, time with girlfriends just makes it all better.  Girlfriends are a lot like good books…they are uncensored, often make you laugh out loud at yourself, always have stories to tell, (some fiction), they make escaping the everyday world of non-fiction very easy -and extremely entertaining!  Girlfriends are always there.  It’s their definition.

Coming in 2nd to time spent with girlfriends, would be time spent getting cozy in an overstuffed chair with a good book (I have yet to find a bad book) and a cup of comforting hot tea.   Books are stories that help me connect to my world, or help me escape for just a little while.  Books take me on adventures into other times and places, inviting me to have more than just one good life.  Like girlfriends, good books are easy to read and should never be left on the shelf.  

                                                       “Good friends, good books-                                                     and a sleepy conscience: 

                                                       … this is the ideal life.” 

                                                                                 -Mark Twain

      I am hooked on self-help books lately! …until tomorrow, when I start a new class at Elmira College. Sadly, reading for pleasure will take a back seat to academics….

      I know! I saw that picture and I just stared at it…daydreaming of the quietness. One of the things I like about living in Elmira: knowing it was good enough for Mark Twain.
