The library of life
5/13/2006 8:34:43 PM    [ Flag as Spam or Inappropriate ]

There is an author on this site that once compared his life to a book, neatly separated into different chapters. I would like to take this idea and bend and twist it alittle to tell my story...
I would liken my life to a library of books. The first book was that of my childhood. It was the kind of book that made you smile, laugh and yes, at times cry. It was the kind of book that you finish with a smile, revisiting certain passages that make you smile. It is my favorite book in my collection.

The second book was my marriage. It started out like all fairytales full of love and romance and a princess with her white knight. It was a pleasant story that had few moments of drama and a lot of love. But it was the kind of story that took a sudden and unexplained turn. Characters that were honest and true turned out to not be so and the hero's sterling image is revealed to be rather tarnished.When I finished this book, I was saddened and left with an empty feeling. I needed to find another book to help me forget about the feelings that the previous book had left me with.

I then found the book of was a beautiful book. An embossed hardcover, the kind that you proudly display. I bought the book without a second thought, anxious to begin reading. And I was not had a damsel and another knight and a lovely story of second chances. I was enthralled. I couldn't put it down. But, just as I was engrossed in the story, I turned the page and it was blank. The book was done, over before it ever really began. I was confused and saddened that I could not finish this glorious story..I so longed to read more. I would continue to pick up this book and eagerly read...but everytime I would get to the part where I was enthralled and I would run into the blank pages. I found myself picking this book up again and again hoping that magically the story would appear, but it never did.

I have not been to the bookstore since, indeed I have lost my passion for the written word after the disappointment of my last story.

I hope that someday, I will be able to buy another book.
