My father taught me how to read when I was only three or four years old. From that time, the written word has become more than just a way to attain knowledge or even enjoy entertainment. It has been my way of understanding the world and my place in it. This blog will detail my daily journey in applying what I have read and currently reading to the little, but interesting, events that happen in my life. The purpose is to show how literature is far from being trite and inapplicable in our day. No, instead, it helps us to see how connected we really are, throughout space and time.
