Wisdom: Golden Nuggets from Seneca, Ruiz

Are you looking for words to lend perspective and/or motivation for personal change as you get to know 2022? Or are you seeking reminders from great thinkers? Or are you after food for thought to serve at your next dinner party?

Click on each book cover to see a few of my thoughts about these two nuggets that have found their way to my active reading list time and time again.

Something New: Books and My Backpack

What’s in your backpack?

Get out your drum and give it a roll; my blog has a new name, Books and My Backpack. I offer you spoiler-free reviews of books that will take you on adventures around the world. Selections include the Pacific Crest Trail, Costa Rica, the Silk Road, and Mont Blanc.

If journeys of the mind are your thing, authors include the Dalai Lama, Thoreau, Hesse, and Seneca. See the drop-down menu for a list of book titles (and quick links to each review).

There’s much more coming from the trails and pages ahead, so stay tuned.

Where am I in my wife Sue’s photo? In the Alps, taking a break from the Tour du Mont Blanc, which will be part of my next book. My first book is Camino Sunrise: Walking With My Shadows.

I hope you like my blog’s new name. Have a suggestion for a book or a trail? Please send it along.
