I always loved to read and ever since I was a little girl, I dreamed of having a library full of books. One of my first memories is of me at my grandfather’s dacha (Russian for a country house) walking to a shady spot under a tree with a book in one hand and my pet German Shephard Rex in the other. Once we arrived at our “secret” spot, Rex and I would nestle under the pendulous tree branch with my back supported by the trunk and Rex’s body curled by my feet. I’d open to the last page where I left off and start to read out loud.
Books served more than an escape for me. It was a way to feel my emotions in their truest form … raw, unorganized, and untethered … and without . I didn’t have to hide my tears or conceal my laughter when I read; I was free to be myself.
Today, I read to feed my soul as it evolves. Growth is what I’m after so I’m always reading or listening to self-development and New Age books and these are the books that you will mostly find here. I hope they guide you on your journey as they did on mine!
