This week I'm featuring an intro from a book I hope to start this week. All of the reviews I have read have made me curious for more, and it's only $1.99 for the Kindle Edition!
2013 - William Morrow / Harper Collins
" The poet A.E. Housman wrote of the 'land of lost content,' and how he can never return to the place where he once was so happy.
When I was younger, I greatly admired the poem's sentiment because I was not old enough to realize how banal it was. The young invariably cherish their youth, incapable of imagining life past thirty. The notion that the past is more idyllic is absurd. What we remember is our innocence, strong limbs and physical desire. Many people are shackled by their past and unable to look ahead with any degree of confidence because they not only don't believe in the future, they don't really believe in themselves."
