About This Book
The essays of poet Ryu Shiva, whose poetry, prose collections, travelogues, and translations have always resonated with me. In addition to the title, "Who knows if its good or bad", "A fool in the rain", "Don't count your blessings without counting your wounds", "God writes straight messages in squiggly letters", "An imperfect person can give a perfect rose", "Life mantra", "There is no star that shines without burning itself", and other stories about life and human beings are told in the language of a poet.
The true confessions one person can make to another: 'I like myself best when I'm with you', and 'The secret to making magic happen', which is that you're not a genius anyway, so you just do it and do it and do it and do it until the end.
If we could see the whole picture of our lives, would we realize that our current roadblocks will one day turn out to be a gift? "Don't put a period where God put a comma," the author says. We are bigger than our problems. There are insights into how to turn even the bumps in the road into laughter and enlightenment. It is often said that essays are written with the stroke of a brush, but some brushes cut deeper than iron and burn away the impurities of the mind like fire, leaving us to ponder the days we have lived and the days we will live.
