Little Bee, Chris Cleave, Human Condition

I just finished reading Little Bee, in the large type version. This remarkable novel from British author, Chris Cleave, is the ultimate in fast paced drama,suspense,character development,and entertainment. The writer's story telling ability and vivid characters drew me in and captured my attention from the first sentence on. I have told everyone I know about it and give it a thumbs up, here on my blog.

Jack Kornfield, Selflessness, Sense of Self

Brief and to the point...Wanted to share with you that I'm reading a wonderful novel, Little Bee, by Chris Cleave. The writing and story hooked me from the first sentence which is, "Most days I wish I was a British pound coin instead of an African girl."

Today's quote comes from Jack Kornfield, the author of the book, A Path With Heart. "There are two parallel tasks in a spiritual life. One is to discover selflessness, the other is to develop a healthy sense of self. Both sides of that apparent paradox must be fulfilled for us to awaken."

Enjoy a lovely evening.

Thanks for Visiting

Hope you enjoyed your visit and will return again. Be well. Live well. Lead a colorful life! Warm regards, Nan
