a relaxing little read before work
ah… this morning i had a very nice relaxing little read before work.
charlotte goes to the gym before work every morning, so as a result i get into work quite early. as of late its been a very handy opportunity for me to catch up with work, but i’m pretty much up to date now and so this morning i decided to ease myself into the day a bit.
so at 08:15 i went to the canteen, got myself a croissant and sat down and had a nice read before work.
this is the view from where i was sitting.
i love starting my days this way. for a good few years i used to take the train to work every morning and i really got into the habit of reading in the mornings.
this morning i was reading heretics of dune. i’m into the last 25 pages now and its really hard to put down (which is also a part of the reason i decided to read a bit before work!). its so exciting!
i was reading about the avuncular miles teg. my bashar, who does amazing things. (a bashar is a kind of general in dune). if anyone has read dune then i can tell you that he is an atreides and, being a distant relation of paul, he has that atreides magic in him.
he talks to me too, my bashar. well, sort of. i read his thoughts and reading them is like listening to him speak. which is a very nice way to start the day.
