|About the Book|
This book was a throw-away when I picked it up to read at intervals while I was waiting for my computer to boot up. It is a collection of anecdotes, observations, brief essays, fables, poetry, etc. that are entertaining enough to keep you awake if you are not too tired. One fable about a mother of a lost young adult, who accepted the situation and simply tried to saturate her memory indelibly with worthwhile memories of him as she looked at him and watched silently day after day, has a striking happy ending as the prodigal comes to recognize the love from his mothers eyes and realizes that he has lost everything else. This fable has constructive application enough to encourage me to keep the book.
