We hope from – even demand of – our reading that it deliver us from the tyranny of the mundane.  There is more to life than these four walls.  And the soul sings – in reader and writer – to envision something larger behind that corner up ahead.

As a teenager, I sought out this transformed reality in the proverbial escape into books away from my unhappiness.  We like to lose this world, our very self, in a good book.  But reading isn’t just anesthesia or a verbal trip to the theme park.  We’re not only running from something, in many cases, but running to.

Suffering and beauty lift us out of self-absorption to something greater than ourself.  Even humor, a touch of beauty for its dip into joy, helps us get over our bad self for the moment.  There is lightness.  Life isn’t all about shuffling along under a load.  We can set it down.  Trust that Someone or something’s got our back, be it God or friend or peace with self.  When we hope or even fear as we ought from the lessons of literature and poetry, we realize a fresh reverence.  Privy to the vast range of possibilities ancient and modern tales disclose, we learn new ways of responding to challenges and can exchange the load for a dream.

Apart from how interesting he is to read of, the boogeyman is someone we all know.  We’ve all been afraid.  Whether of the real person who haunts you or the voice in the dark that murmurs you’re not good enough.
