Distracting with Books

Came across this illustration just now.

I see a boy who has been shunned or cast aside. His room almost looks like a cave, as if he’s hidden from the world. The books surround him, protecting and comforting him. Shoulders hunched, he shy’s away from the world and immerses himself in a better world through his books.

Don’t surrender your loneliness so quickly.
Let it cut more deep. – Rumi
