I’m Books. I’m 31 years old and I live in the Ohio burbs with my husband of 5 years and our dog.
The title of this blog is a nod to a poem by Stephen Dobyns, Pursuit. I think it captures pretty accurately the daily struggle to balance the responsibilities, joys and wants of life. Reading is my favorite past time. One of the best times of my life was, believe it or not, when I had mono, and could do nothing but lay around and read day and night (doctor’s orders!) so this metaphor (?I know it’s not an anaology…whatever) is particularly apt.
I’ve just found out that our current want, to have a baby, is going to be a lot harder than it is for most people. I’ve been thinking about starting a blog for a while and now seems to be a good time as I can hopefully sort out my feelings and connect with others going through the same thing as we embark on this next pursuit.
