I finished this sweet little book in a day. Truth be told, I had a different week 3 book, but it is a slow- go, and I am really trying to keep up and on track this time around- so I decided to slip this little red book into the midst. And I am so glad that I did.
Leo Buscaglia is not just knowledgeable about the subject of love, he also exudes it and seems to live and write straight from the heart. The book has a conversational tone, and is chock full of wisdom and advice.
Buscaglia believes that love needs to be learned and paid attention to, in the same way that we focus on and research our art, music, literature, even architecture. With no experience or effort invested in trying to understand the mystery of love, we run the risk of just walking right past it and not even knowing what we missed. Or of royally screwing it up..!
In these chaotic and divisive times, I felt calm and safe with the words and language of this book. It was a nice reminder of the hope and happiness that is all around us, even when so much of what we see is tense and dysfunctional. A very nice way to spend a day!
