A year to LIve - Book review

........'Each day, we hurry through our lunch breaks, skipping breakfast many times, sit through late evening overseas conference calls and yet rarely we seem to catch up.' Does this strike a chord ??

Is there a solution ? Do we have a choice ??!!

Stephen Levine, poet and teacher, posed a simple question: “If you had only a year to live what would you do differently?”

Here is what a reade has to say on the book:

"A Year to Live is the book to read if you don’t want to reach the end of your life with feelings of regret, failure, shame, or loneliness.”

This is a book about living, not dying.
All these blue lines are excerpts from the article - thought provoking, right ? Just go ahead & read the book... 

Ideally, I would have preferred to read the book, which I am anyway going to do immediately, and then share the book review. But, the topic is too compelling.. hence, this post.

I am in no way justifying the 'choice' I have made.... I don't need to :)
Though I have got an overwhelming 'endorsement' of my "brave decision" !( unsolicited!)

Happy Reading!!
