A part of my coping with the stress of the world these days is reading books. This is mostly physical paper books. Some from the library, others purchased, and most are fiction. Books are magical things that introduce me to new people, places, and cultures. As I read, I come to feel like the characters in the stories are real people. I like or dislike them, and care about their actions. Books are containers of whole worlds.
Stream of Consciousness Saturday, #SOCS, is hosted by Linda G Hill. The prompt for today is “container.” Use the word “container” any way you’d like. Or think about a container of some kind and write about it.
