Brida is a book by Paulo Coelho. I bought it quite a few years ago and like most of Paulo Coelho’s books, only when the time is right do I usually reach out for his books. I still have three of his books sitting on my shelf waiting to be read. Brida was one of the “hardest” books I’ve read, because it scared me. I don’t know why, but Brida reminded me of me. And that to me, was scary. I’m glad to say though, that I did complete the book and though I have not gone back to it, it’s still one of my favourites from this author.
Another quote day. I’m just so totally pooped from the awesomeness of working six 12.5 hour days week ( is this even the correct way to say it? Never mind..it’ll do) for 2 weeks (yay! one week down as I type this and 2 weeks done when you read this..woohoo!) so you and I get a wonderful break with another quote from The Map by Collete Baron-Reid.
Quote for today comes from the book, The Map: Finding the Magic and Meaning in the Story of your Life
Ah…it’s December 🙂 Back to regularly scheduled posts every Sundays and Wednesdays! Yay for routine 😉
This post was originally meant to be posted earlier this week but Sage who is an awesome writer of terrific poems wrote one specially because I requested it and I *had* to share it.
On the day this post got written, I decided to “go with the flow” and picked up the book nearest to me and opened a random page to get a nice, simple quote.
Looking for quotes or passages to help me bring balance to this month of daily blogging, reaching into the bookshelves, picking up random books, flipping to random pages; the passage below caught my eye.
Hope you enjoy 🙂
I want to share with you a short excerpt from the book Insomnia by Stephen King. It was the second reading for me , the first time being a couple of years ago. I can’t remember if the impact of this was as profound as it was then, but I will tell you that this time it felt like a pretty big brick hit me right in the middle of my eyes! Thankfully it was just a metaphorical brick, so no injuries were actually sustained 😉
For the month of October, I would like to share with you some quotes and passages from the book Autobiography of a Yogi which shares the life of Paramahansa Yogananda ( January 5, 1893 – March 7, 1952). It was written by Paramahansa Yogananda and details his life long search of the Divine from childhood. As I type this, I’m only about slightly more than half done but felt it would be nice to share some of the passages which caught my attention (and that of my highlighter) 😉
I’m planning to go through the parts to share in order of their appearance in the book.
