Those who know me in a more personal capacity will have realised by now that I've been left pretty devastated by some news from the weekend.
I'm going through the usual not eating, not sleeping routine. What is more disturbing to me is I'm also struggling to read.
It is almost amusing that there have been times in recent weeks when I would have given anything for more time to myself to read - and now I don't want to.
Over the years reading has always been a massive source of comfort to me. It is what I turn to when I want to just forget the world and escape elsewhere. To not be able to do that leaves me feeling a little lost.
What I want to ask you, my readers, is: have there been times when you have lost the reading mojo? If it isn't too private, what caused it? How did you get it back?
P.S. I hope you can all understand that the blog might suffer for a few weeks. I hope to keep up posting, but, if there is less to read, I do hope you'll stick around and be back when I feel more capable.
