I'm in the middle of moving. To kill the time, I've been watching a lot of TV and movies.
After binging my way through Game of Thrones , I stumbled across a documentary called Minimalism on Netflix.
It took me a little longer to read Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind than I had expected; I don't mind though, because its not a book I wanted to rush through. I'll make sure to do a full rundown with you guys at a later time, but what I can say is that its taught and will continue to teach me to appreciate my role in this world.
As a quick refresher, I commuted to reading 12 books in 2016. February's book I found one day at a "garage sale" a couple of blocks away from my apartment. I use "garage sale" loosely because when I arrived a sign asked me to drop fair market value of whatever I purchased through a window of a car parked in front. I dropped 2 bucks and considered my Karma quota met.
$2 bought me February's book: Hiroshima, by John Hersey. Hiroshima recounts the stories of 4 survivors of the atomic bomb dropped in 1945. Check out what the New York Times had to say below:
I'm pretty stoked to see what this book is all about. If anything, with the recent increase in bombings we've seen in Syria as a result of ISIS' terrorism, I'm wondering what lesson is to be learned.
