Read full description of the books:
I love this book. It has been 14 years since I have read it and I still remember clearly what it means to me:
Life is long....and in this long life you lead a series of mini-lives. In each "life" you become a different version of you. We are blessed with the chance and sometimes forced against our will to reinvent ourselves again and again until one day we are very old and find that we are living in Florida wearing polyester pantsuits. Did you ever imagine that would be you?
That person you marry at a ripe young age may become someone from your past that now seems as insignificant as an old high school boyfriend. That job we have today that's so important may be a mere blip on the radar when we are 85. Will you even remember the name of the company?
It's something I like to think about. And it works both ways. Sometimes I hope that the "life" I'm in never ends and my fear is that one day its time will be up. In other periods of my life, I remember that nothing is forever and this some day may not be remembered by me at all.
Very few books have given me such a lasting message. I plan carry it with me throughout my long lifetime.
