No sense letting to go to empty when don’t have to…
A lesson with cars…
I texted this to my wife this morning in a conversation we initially were having about cat food (aside: so expensive!).
I realized, as I looked at the piles of books on our bookcase, this also applies to my book borrowing and book buying habits.
Even if I am not reading anything, I have to have at least one book, if not more, in the queue (tank). For example, this week I borrowed four books from our hometown library and one from Free Library of Philadelphia’s Overdrive. Whether or not, I will read them over the next few weeks, that is another thing, but the point is I can’t let my tank go to empty.
However, when I first typed the text to my wife I misspelled “sense” with “since.” No since letting to go to empty when don’t have to…was that my subconscious trying to tell me something? That it’s OK to let go to empty even when don’t have to? Though, in this case, not a lesson with cars. Maybe about reading and life.
Just empty your shelves, empty your life, sometimes, and start over. In the past, I have done that with my reading, at least in terms of what is checked out from the library. Perhaps, as I approach my 50th year, I need to do that with my life more than I already have done.
Maybe there in sense in my letting the tank go to empty even when I don’t have to.
