Through Reading II


Through reading we share emphatically (but not exclusively) human expression of curiosity. Two dramatically different people reading simultaneously is a very heartening idea. At its core, through reading, two people are acknowledging their inner child and with it a vulnerability, which I hope instills compassion. The man reading on the park bench is at the end of his book; while the other, in the café, is beginning his. This cyclical event offers many opportunities for shared understanding.
