But a book is only the heart’s portrait — every page a pulse.” Emily Dickinson

As a grownup, I enjoy spending alone time in outdoor places, to air my thoughts, pray and rest. Things were different for me growing up as a kid. I didn’t get the chance to explore nature as much.

Whitespace back then took place in a different locale.

I found soul rest in books.

I loved reading — engaging in unspoken conversation with authors I had never met in person, but found to be good companions between pages.

Just like I’d scan a room at a social gathering for a friendly face, I’d browse the shelves for a title that read like an invitation.

My closest companions since childhood came to me between paper and print. Now, as an adult, this love affair hasn’t since stopped.

I’d like to share some books that have crossed my paths:
