Disparate choices -
Taking a seat in one of "the" special reading rooms of the house, my eyes glanced to the basket of available printed materials from which I might select a short "read." Two sources with clearly visible topics were in sight and with my mind on automatic (the mode with which we most often spend our time) it instantaneously switched to process mode. Faster than I can type these words, my built-in processor flipped through questions - what/why I should/would, should not/would not select one over the other..... would my pick be made based upon curiosity, habit, compassion, intellectual challenge, spiritual awakening, thirst for knowledge, the familiar, the unfamiliar?
So what were my choices? - Henri J.M. Nouwen - Bread for the Journey - or The Week's review of reviews: Books with the feature Muqtada Al-Sadr, the Shia Revival, and the Struggle for Iraq. Disparate to say the least - tomorrow I'll reveal a few gems (you know they will be if you read them here) about my selection pros and cons:)
Stay tuned.....how exciting:(
