A guided journal to discover simple pleasures every day
by Emine Rushton
was drawn to this title by both the cover and the concept. The author, early in the book, shares a quote from Alan Watts which states, in part, “The meaning of life is just to be alive;” it is not to run and run and run. So, this is a journal to help one to slow down and experience life, rather than chasing after the next thing. In that spirit, this book includes things to do and think about in order to have that kind of life, 365 entries in all. Some are original ideas for me, others I already knew but that is okay. Readers can choose what they want to take and leave the rest, hopefully after a few deep breaths. Fill in the pages and have a memento of this time in life.
By the way, the illustrations are lovely. They very much enhance the text.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title. All opinions are my own.
