YOU ARE WHAT YOU READ
Pat T. is ringing in the the New Year rather philosophically. “I have just started reading Falling Upward : A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life by Richard Rohr. The author has an interesting take on life as being divided into two segments- the first half is when you are discovering your identity (building the container) and the second half is when you are searching for meaning in your life (filling the container). The challenges, struggles and failures we face in the second half of life can be the impetus to find our way up again into a richer more fulfilling existence, thus the paradox title It is quite philosophical and something to ponder as we begin a new year!”
You Are What You Read is our “Staff Recommends” GONE WILD and features recommendations from Darien Library staff members. And you don’t have to live in Darien to receive an email with our top picks!
