Amid the whirlwind of information, economic shocks, and the constant pressures on our time and our minds, it's easy to ignore the call of our inner calls. Readership of literature of any kind is skyrocketing in numbers. Reading and learning both are the antidote to all distraction and busyness.
"To Converse with the Greats" by Vera Pavlova
To converse with the greats
by trying their blindfolds on;
to correspond with books
by rewriting them;
to edit holy edicts,
and at the midnight hour
to talk with the clock by tapping a wall
in the solitary confinement of the universe.
