English novelist Graham Greene once said, "Writing is a form of therapy; sometimes I wonder how all those, who do not write, compose, or paint can manage to escape the madness, the melancholia, the panic fear, which is inherent in a human condition."
I have been reading a lot lately to escape; reading is good for that. So is writing, and I have been able to do more of that, too. A few weeks ago I had an unexpected change in my work schedule--not bad, but it is taking some getting used to. And I am incredibly grateful for the therapy reading and writing provides to help get through life's changes.
Personally, I highly recommend a good hour of both reading and writing on a daily basis, especially when the rough patches come about.
