Lost in fiction. Too much time spent reading means too much time spent away from reality. Can one read too much? Yes. Certainly. Just as one can play too much chess, playing until the tiled floor at the pub becomes a chess board, and the patrons, the pawns and pieces, so too can one read too much fiction, reading until the others around you become unwitting participants in an unintentional drama of fanciful design.

This week, a break from reading, a break from writing, a break from fiction. I look for employment so that I can preserve my sanity. Too much time spent around the house is driving my cat up the wall. Even he wishes I would leave.
