Creating a Pause

I like to read children’s picture book Christmas stories.

I like to go to other people’s homes and read to other families too.

Once I was asked why.

I used to give a really thoughtful answer but it never ever felt right.

Then I realized why, besides liking to.

I do it to create a pause.

I do it because it slows down life.

I do it because I can share something.

I do it because it is quiet and slow and meaningful.

I do it because I get to look closely into children’s faces.

I sometimes get a snuggle.

We spend so much time piling on to our lives.

What we need is to spend time creating more pauses.
