I had thought of writing this post and then I noticed the subject of Laura Bailey’s Monday challenge was Castle. It went together perfectly. Visit Laura’s blog https://alltheshoesiwear.wordpress.com/2018/07/16/manic-mondays-3-way-prompt-3/
The Hearst Castle Library – (from Pinterest)
Books were among her most favorite things. She could travel to so many places through the pages of a book. Had no problem shutting out the noise or conversations that were going on around her. She could read while on a train, or sitting in a busy coffee shop. Park benches called her name or sometimes she would find a soft spot underneath the shade of a tree.
Many nights she burned the midnight oil because of having to read just one more page.
The sun shined bright in her heart when sitting on the sand, listening to the sound of the waves while losing herself in a book.
Was there any place where she couldn’t sit and enjoy a good book?
Today she had one goal in mind. To visit the special castle that she had heard about. One that held a library of treasures in it. Libraries had a special aura to them and were so inviting. They were so quiet and peaceful. Her hands would touch the books as she would browse through the many shelves of them. Sometimes she would hold a book in her hand and imagine what it would feel like to have been the author. To be the author of something that would touch the hearts of others and bring them smiles. Oh what an indescribable feeling that must be!
She smiled to herself as she kept browsing through the many books, looking for a very special one. Suddenly there it was. The book she had been looking for. She held it in her hands, gazing at the beautiful cover. She looked for just the right place to curl up and sit.
Finding the chair she wanted, she sank into the plush cushions. As she opened the book she was overcome with an indescribable feeling.
