just realized that i've been reading a lot on depressing topics, most of it involving inhumane acts such as genocide, civilian shooting, ineffective policies on human rights..
But yesterday I started a book that is definitely one of the most uplifting, encouraging I've read in a while:
THREE CUPS OF TEA.
I'm only on pg. 44, but it's just an easy read, that I think I might just finish this by the end of the day. Or I could try to savour it, and distract myself with some other books.
(Shopping at Amazon.ca really paid off. I'm getting all these awesome books for such a good deal...!!)
A new one just arrived today - Crude World: The Violent Twilight of Oil. (I bet the content is just as cheerful as the title sounds.)
And I'm ready to immerse myself in Korphe village on the Karakoram Mountains in Pakistan again.
'When it is dark enough, you can see the stars'.
HAPPY NEW YEAR...! cheers to a new beginning in TWO-THOUSAND AND TEN!
