I think J.K Rowling was absolutely right when she said that ‘something very magical can happen’ when you read a really good book. Books change us from the inside out. And when all we need is some time to recover, take a deep breath and unwind… books and sunlight are the perfect recipe. Indeed… sometimes all one needs is a good book (or four of them) and some time in the sunlight (or many countless hours). And when the sun begins to dim and it’s time to head home, the sunlight is replaced with a glass of wine and the heaven can continue for more endless hours. Now… back from a couple of days of books in the Portuguese Algarve coast, I am feeling a little more rested and recovered, but still a while to go (this doctorate really gets us from within)…. and somehow, between the books and the stories… my spirit seems to have awaken once again.
