Do you notice that readers actually spend a lot of time thinking, our words are more descriptive. We have more emotions, variety of feelings. We seem to relate to others of our same kind more. We pour our feelings out more often in forms of writing, poetry, blog entries, diaries, pictures. We emote more and are more sensitive. Just like how when we read, these ideas just fill our minds, pictures form and its colourful, it can be dull too but they are thoughts in one way or another.
By putting our thoughts out we can clearly view them, because we wouldnt want them to slip off our minds do we?
My friends that read, I feel that inevitably we’d share similar thoughts, and the advice we give/take in, its easier to relate. Its through real experiences, from books and our lives, just placed into careful words.
