It’s the way the page feels tucked between your thumb and pointer finger as you turn the page.
It’s how you can get so lost between the physical world and the world inside your head.
It’s the way we laugh, cry, and feel all these emotions; as if we were the characters themselves.
It’s the comparison between the character you made up in your mind and the one that plays the role in the movie.
It’s sharing your favorite book with someone you love.
It’s seeing a stranger in a café reading the same book, and the need to talk about it together.
It’s the way that tossing up words into this one place can change you.
It’s what inspired me to start writing, and share my writing with others; and there are infinite amounts of ways that I could show my gratitude- but the only one so fitting was to sit here, and write about it to you.

And it is with that introduction, that everything changed.
