“Good writing is supposed to evoke sensation in the reader – not the fact that it is raining, but the feeling of being rained upon.” — E.L. Doctorow
I remember my Dad buying me a book entitled Where The Rainbow Ends by Clifford Mills, and I was so engrossed, I read it in one sitting, finally turning out my bedroom light at 3am! It was around 1973/1974
There have been other books where I have been running with the hero to escape the bad guys, or feeling the pain of a character having lost a member of their family.
I don’t read as much as I used to and little on the shelves attract me to purchase.
However, there is one book I have read umpteen times (and wore off the gilt on the title cover) where a certain chapter always makes me feel the character’s stress and tensions ebb away when he sleeps in the same room, in the same bed, as he did as a child in his uncle’s home. Wonderful.

Remember When

 

 

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
