Turned Back!

One of life’s madnesses:  Losing your place in a good story.  Something on the outside reels your spirit back into your body, and you sit there staring at ink and paper, feeling that you’ve been turned back from the primeval garden by an angel with a flashing sword. Oh, but the joy you regain when the words once again disappear, and imperceptibly you are drawn back through the soft pulp of the page and find that lost horizon and hear the familiar voices of friends.
