Chibimagic's Weblog

A mania grips me. Casual browsing has brought me to this point. Almost by accident, I came upon a short story in The New Yorker. Typical and melodramatic in its utter femininity, but it was literature. After being mired in the parched desert of work emails and tech blog posts, it was a tall glass of cool refreshment.

This isn’t the first time I’ve forgotten how amazing words can be – The last time, too, after light heartbreak. I want to fill my head with their spun sugar and let it dissolve against my brain. I want to press each individual letterform into my skin, feel their lightness and weight in my bones. My heart aches and screams at the years I’ve spent not reading. What other pleasures have I forgotten? A yawning void of time opens up before me: I want to fill it with words.
