I decided to run through Japan Town when I went out for a run this evening and the next thing I know I am inside this cozy, little bookstore looking at a great collection of used and rare books instead of running.
How have I not noticed this bookstore before now? The owner was such a joy to talk with, and his love of books and stories captivated me as he told me a story of his own.
With all the time I had for a run spent inside Forest Books, I made my way to the grocery store to pick up dinner. While I was walking, I kept thinking about how life would indeed be boring without dreamers and their stories and naturally, I kept thinking about Jeanette Walls' love affair with her memories in The Glass Castle.
Dreamers certainly can carve out a life on their own terms.
Here's to a life full of dreams and creating new stories.
