...experiencing the thunderstorm from a place of safety
My baby daughter stood at the window watching the rain fall, listening to the thunder.
She pointed at the rain, then reached up to touch her hair, as if wondering why the rain wasn't getting her wet.
We can safely experience the world through a good book.
All the thunder.
All the lightning.
It can be a little scary, but we're never hit, never hospitalized.
This must be one of the allures of reading.
What else draws you to a good book?
