Currently Reading...


Susana Tamaro, Follow Your Heart

"The entire book is an enchanting letter written by a loving Italian grandmother to her granddaughter. It’s simple, short and beautiful."

I read it already about 2 years ago and bought it yesterday from the machine in the clinical center while I was waiting for my therapy to start. I love this book, it's a good reading, exploring all kind of different themes; youth and old age, love, relationships, loss and regret, joys of life... everything told with a lot of wisdom, teaching universal thruts about life.

"And through the eyes of a woman nearing the end of her days, we come to understand what life experience has taught her: that no matter what the stakes, we must look within ourselves and gather the courage to follow our hearts."

So, follow your hearts!

It has been a long time since I've read this book but I loved it. After all those years, I had found myself talking about it with mom the other day. Guess it makes a lasting impression.

That looks like a wonderful book! I will definately bookmark it for I think it would make a wonderful present for those who are grieving the loss of their Mother.

It must be a great book for you to buy it inspite of having read it. I have experienced seeing someone nearing the end of her life and I know the agony it leaves on the family, friends and love ones who witnesses as she/he comes to an end. My SIL was nearing her end, she felt it and knew it and we were there till her last breath.
Just passing by from Dr. John.

I have not heard of this book but will check it out soon. Thanks for the recommendation.

Sent by Dr. John, a guy who has too much time on his hands and thinks the rest of us do, too (just kidding...we love going to his link picks!).
