Strangely I’m stumbling over so many of my own emotions at the moment. After 9 nights, five different abodes my emotions are heightened beyond belief.
Is this an ‘age’ thing? Is it that the planets have been seemingly in disarray of late? Is it simply that with the start of a new year, one during which I feel instinctively many good things will finally eventuate I know what is really driving me?
‘The Rosie Project‘ leapt out of the latest pile of books I quietly brought home from one my local charity shops. It is an easy read, enlightening, simultaneously funny and yet poignant. In my mind, it is a brilliant book. I have devoured it. Laughed out loud on many occasions. Been touched by the underlying humanity of it. Gained insights into the mindset of Aspergers. I’ve related to thoughts expressed in it, recognized my own idiosyncratic ways in the emotions the characters express. It is a book I’d highly recommend. Emotions drive us. More specifically, they drive me. When I stop and consciously ignore my emotions, that’s when I make poor, even bad decisions. This book reminded me just how important they are. Graeme Simsion thank you!
Emotions have their own logic
