My post this month is different from the usual because I need to share this, write about it, mull over it, and, it is in keeping with our theme of growing as writers and being there for each other.
I've started reading a book called The Alchemist. I'm sure many of you have read it. Why do I say that? Because...
Now, on Facebook I sometimes follow people I don't know if I like what they post. For the last two years, or maybe more, I have followed a man named Paulo Coelho because his words speak to my heart, his silent photos speak imagery, emotion. I have "followed" Paulo Coelho because I liked his Facebook presence and when I signed on to Instagram last year, I followed him there too.
Reading this novel now I see how blind I was to this "omen." I wasn't ready yet to know this story. I am obviously ready now. If you want an experience, as a writer and a reader, that you won't forget, The Alchemist is a must read. Paulo Coelho hears the many languages of the World and speaks to your heart. He has been helping me for two years without even knowing it, to find my Personal Legend.
This post is too long. I apologize for that. But now my eyes and my heart are seeing/hearing new lessons and I had to share them with you.
