NO this does not mean I am not going to rant and rave again just thought would write about book reading well more or less read few chapters to go !!!!!
I have never heard of him but seem loads of other people have looking at amount of views on you tube and on his book so thought would give it a read !!
I do sometimes read self-help books because well I seem to have a lot of problems a few people have called me a “problem person but alot of problems can be solved or negotiated with but this book deals with a man called Randy pausch ( something like that bit daft blogging about book when it’s not in the room !! but still anyhow he has terminal cancer and he gives this last lecture and also writes this book which certain statements ring true yer i must do that and remember that quotation .
AS stated not sure if i am a fan or not maybe it would have been better to have spent more time with his kids then reading and writing but still this way we can all remember him ,
It is no way a dreary book and makes u think i must try and live this way ( i know i wont though but i will share a couple of stories such as he was about 8 when the moon landings happend and he reemembers his parents telling him it wasa time for bed oooh hey this is a major world event and u are telling me to go to bed , grumble grumble but his dad took a photo of the moon landing to give to him to which he kept telling him to follow his dreams so many childhood dreams are squeezed out of kids my niece when about 8 was obsessed with the author Jacqueline Wilson and wanted to be a writer that’s fantastic I told her saying “hope u remember i took u to see her play and got u most of her books . Erin is 17 now and does not want me to mention her love of J. wilson but she does has an interest in English lit and wants to go to uni so really the dream is still their but in a different form !! SHE may have been put off books and reading if said “don’t be daft u are not Jackie wilson !!
The vast majority of us have some sort problem that we wish did not have the so called elephant in the room Randy talk about his pancreatic cancer claiming no one talked about it as felt embarrassed and he said u cant remove the elephant but u just have to try and live with it !! I have various health probs such as diabetic ( people talk about that ) Aspergic people not to bad but a large proportion of people , have no idea of what to say seems strange but alot of medical people seem to be flummoxed by me instead of just asking me and then got ptsd which shuts 95% of the people up about it i am quite open about various so called problems as it is only by talking about the so called Elephant in the room that u learn to live with it !!!
last word no one asks about my sore finger now that is the real Elephant in the room
