I Opened a Book

Hello! I have never heard of this author or this poem, however, as soon as I read it, I had to reblog it! This is me to a t! I have so many books inside me, it’s crazy! Reading has always been one of my very favorite pastimes especially lately. Books, books, books….there will never be too many for me!

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! 🙂

About whitefeatherfloating

When I began this blog I was simply going to share my writing. However, after being part of the blogging world for quite some time now, I decided to begin sharing my artwork. Patsy's Creative Corner will always have my artwork and some writing, but I also created a blog called "My Crazy Life!" in order to simply write my short autobiography and hopefully get some feedback on it as I go. However, it is a very slow project right now. You can find it here: https://spreadingmy2wings.wordpress.com Thanks for visiting! :)
