My biography of Cleo Laine arrived in the mail today. I’ve been waiting for like 2 weeks for this hardcover book to be shipped from Oregon. I love reading about people’s lives. It’s so interesting to read about the backstories of people, and it’s even more exhilarating when the stories are from the lives of people we admire. Finally, I’m reading something I want to. For a moment I’m quiet, silently reading with the music of Cleo in the background, her voice pushing me onwards. It’s a beautiful Good Friday and I’m glad to be doing something that I truly want. Reading, for my own enjoyment.
