I really like this photo...
I wish I could say the same for my week.
The only good thing about this week is that I made $58.

I am on the edge.
Honestly, one more thing, and the person nearest me
is gonna be running for cover.

So maybe it'll all be better tomorrow
But for today
This is the best I've got.

Hope your week improved. Thanks for commenting over on my blog about reunions. I do admit that my family is unusual in that most everyone gets along, and is good about ignoring general rudeness, lack of social skills, and occasional bigotry. (Actually, we don't ignore it, we just confront it and move on.)

This comment is just to say that I finished the Way of a Peaceful Warrior last week.

I thought it was okay, but fairly improbable (not unlike Perks). Guru-types are hard to find, but then at my reunion I got an accu-pressure massage ala Jin Sin Do that made me think that some of the "touch induced mind trips" of the main character were possible.

I briefly researched the two authors, Perks has gone on to write in a few other venues (like Jericho -- TV) where Millman give seminars on Warrior Living. (His book was more auto-biographical than Perks.)

Millman was older when he wrote is book and it shows. His target audience seems to be 10 to 20 years older than Perks.

Both books were about personal transformation. I think I took more away from Warrior than Perks, including the Zen humor and living in the moment.

That's my two-cents.

I'd recommend Star Girl by Jerry Spinelli. It's a younger kid's book (based on the age of the main characters), but the themes of non-conformity, coming-of-age, and growing up seem more applicable than either of the two books your science teacher "assigned."
