Always a reader. Writing to remember and to share my thoughts on the books I read.
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho is a fable – a story of the young shepherd Santiago who learns the valuable lesson of pursuing one's dream in the face of obstacles; and the even more valuable lesson of being present in every moment of the process it takes to get there. It is a simply told story with a lot of absorb. It spoke to my heart. Worth reading and re-reading.
