The Moral Bucket List

12BROOKS-blog427.jpg

A friend shared an interesting article yesterday. It’s an op-ed by David Brooks which was published in the New York Times on Apr 11, 2015. The article is titled The Moral Bucket List. I could relate to it so much as I have been blessed with people in my life who radiate an inner light. They are always there, ready to reach out, when you need them the most. They are also open and vulnerable, which makes them human and someone who is not afraid to ask for help when they need it. If you have such a person in your life, let them know. Even better, become that someone for yourself and others. Peace!

A visit to the Liberty Books outlet is never a waste of time. It’s the place that I cannot ignore. Ended up buying this book during my last visit to their outlet. I started reading this book on Mar 27th but had to stop due to work commitments. Hope to finish it over next few days.

Dr. Samer Nashef is a senior heart surgeon with special interest in the issues related to quality of care in heart surgery. His book The Naked Surgeon talks about the power and peril of transparency in medicine. His writing style is fluid and non-technical making the book accessible to general public. He is very logical and methodical in presenting his work which I loved. The topic itself is quite interesting. Enjoying this book a lot!

Silence..

Silence is the ocean of the unsaid, the unspeakable, the repressed, the erased, the unheard. It surrounds the scattered islands made up of those allowed to speak and of what can be said and who listens. Silence occurs in many ways for many reasons; each of us has his or her own sea of unspoken words.

Literally translated from Swedish to English, “mitt” means “my” and “smultronstället” means “wild strawberries”. It can be loosely translated to “my favorite place”. It can be a geographical location, a feeling, a home.

Went to Dolmen Mall for something and stopped by at Liberty Books. As expected, I ended up buying 4 more books 🙂 Finished reading The World According to Anna by Jostein Gaarder yesterday and started How to be Bored by Eva Hoffman last night. Have read 20 pages so far and I’m hooked! Felt like she was talking about the issues I’ve been thinking about. Hoping to find some practical tips to try.
