Yesterday was a day of glorious, unashamed inactivity.
A book that had been recommended to me was delivered from Amazon and as I tore off the brown cardboard wrapping all thoughts of work left my mind.
It was a chilly, grey day so armed with hot tea and warm blankets I curled up in a chair and began to read.
Moving only for more tea and pitstops, I read through the day and into the night.
The book? Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert charts the progress of this remarkable woman as she recovers from a life crisis. If you are seeking inspiration I heartily recommend this book. It is uplifting and invigorating.
If you just want a good read, this is also the book for you as it is beautifully written with such creative use of the English language I wanted to weep with jealousy and frustration at the author’s penmanship.
