Through the serendipity of the web, I somehow came across a blog called 37 Days. Asheville, North Carolina writer Patti Digh asked the question, “What would I be doing today if I only had 37 days to live?” after her stepfather was diagnosed with lung cancer, and died 37 days later. She later turned the experience into a book, Life is a Verb: 37 Days to Wake Up, Be Mindful, and Live Intentionally.
I just love how she describes its philosophy:
“Life takes action, not wishful thinking. It takes mindfulness and intention. It takes slowing down and saying yes and being generous and being amazed and loving more.”
Have you read it? What did you think?
Sue, I hadn’t heard of this book before, but I will be sure to read it now. Thanks.
Sue, on your recommendation I borrowed this book from the library. But I am going to buy a copy. Maybe several – some to give as gifts.
I love the book. Very inspirational. Thanks!
Donna, I did the same thing – borrowed it from the library, then went out and bought my own copy. It *is* inspirational.
