My question always. Is it me only ….?
Tell me something different. Have you ever find yourself to have fallen in love with an author and as you trace your life, every piece of it happens to connect with your reads. Strange hey! But is this a coincidence or are these mysteries that we never get to understand or rather they are not explained to us as we wish or desire to or ….
I don’t know but there two authors that I love most and whenever I need a read, I buy from their lists because both of them (as I recall) were the first two authors to fall in love with growing up. Not sure wether they were my mom’s favorite, but I found them in her bunch of novels in our study at home
Ever since then, they have been my best and favorites. Maybe I should ask my mom if she used to read a lot from these authors when she was pregnant with (laugh). I don’t know. But what is interesting is that I feel like every story they write, I resonate with. I connect with it to the point that it feels so real. I feel like I have been there or it is my story they are talking about. It is so so scary sometimes
I wonder why is it like this. I know in many of my experiences that God connects us with people or leads us to stories that have the message as ours. I lived to know an understand that the purpose is to either teach us something or we need that story to be strong or learn from it. Wisdom is what they call it
I know I love family stories because I am a family person. I care a lot about family and I always want the best for it. I like stories that speaks about family lives: their loses, struggles, pain, hurts, experiences, secrets and in general how these families navigate all these as a unit or as an extended family (expanding from just being a mom, dad and their kids to having their adult children having their own kids as well and households), making issues even bigger than the first unit.
As I read about them, listen I get deep with my all and emotions. Please do not laugh at me, this is serious. I share the sadness and the happiness of these stories with my family. This is how far they affect me (I can tell I am not the only one, there are many like me). I am glad that I am not at a mental hospital with serious state of mind as I write this because honestly, they impact on us in real life. We get depressed sometimes. I know that because they are mostly real life stories, we cannot take away our human element as we read. We get involved; and become part of it even if your mind told you it was for “leisure” the effect is not for the fun of it. It’s serious
I have read stories from another of my best author about solving family mysteries. Yep, I know it’s sound funny but in my entire life I always find my self in this space. I am not sure to call it a calling or what, but the two writers always meet me in the center; and the center being the family. Don’t read me wrong. I am not a prophetess or someone trying to say I see things before they happen or what; or I am snooping in my family businesses, a Big no! But it is this space that I always find myself in that I question
But anyways, thank you for reading
The two writers connect and they connect with me somehow. Solving this mystery is also another read for another time. You know what is even worse is that you even feel their influence in your own writing. Does it make sense?
Hope one day I will write about this and my book will be published; and my readers will feel the same thing that I am feeling when I read my authors books
May today do you good
