Bored? Never!

After my wife retired she told me of how a friend asked her, “Don’t you ever get bored?” Her answer? “Never!” Her days are full and quite enjoyable. There’s a lot to be said for that. There’s a lot to be said for enjoying life.

I don’t know the source of this photo, but I like it. As a matter of fact, I can see myself in it. As a bookworm with an extensive personal library, the very concept of boredom is almost anathema to me as well. If I lived to be one hundred, I’m sure I still would not have put a dent in the pile of books that I’d want to still read. Add to that a plethora of other interests and hobbies, and I am ready to challenge the boredom notion too.

Bored? Never! 😊

“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies.
The man who never reads lives only one.”
