2018 has been the year I’ve returned to reading. Reading books (physical paperback and hardback books) has served as a lifeline for my mind and heart to imagine, play, and feel since I was a kid. It’s been difficult to foster and create my writer’s self post grad school, but I’m slowly and surely finding my way with intention. Reading and writing will always be a home I can return to 💖
