Books, knowledge, & wisdom
Yesterday, I read my two-year-old a children’s book about killer whales. I couldn’t help smiling while I read.
As an eighteen-year-old, I’d researched killer whales from islands in British Columbia. As a thirty-eight-year old, I read about them to my own little boy a couple thousand miles away from where I’d once watched in awe as they played.
I was able to read Littler J the book because of bookstore’s going-out-of-business sale. My husband and I picked up two boxes full of delightful reads. We’ll be busy for months, just from those books!
There’s knowledge and (with introspection) wisdom alike to be gained from books; I found bunches of both in another of the books I picked up on Saturday.
When you and I read, listen, and seek information no matter the obstacles, we are mighty.
