One of the things that Mr. Blue Eyes and I do together is read books and discuss them. Can I tell you what a joy that is for me? I’ve always wanted to be able to do that with a partner.
This week we’re starting a new book that we’re both excited about – Undefended Love by Jett Psaris and Marlena Lyons. It promises to be enlightening for both of us. I got my copy in the mail today and I’m chomping at the bit to get started. He hasn’t gotten his copy yet…so I might just have to start reading aloud to him over the phone tonight! We did a lot of reading aloud while he was here in October, but haven’t done it over the phone before.
So far we’ve read two books together: Ishmael and The Story of B by Daniel Quinn. To say we’ve had fascinating conversations about them would be the understatement of the century. We both came face to face with our own assumptions about our culture and then dismantled them together. Those conversations are a big part of what led me to fall even more deeply in love with him while he was here.
We’ve got several other books in queue when we finish Undefended Love. I love books!!!
