Patti Ernst has created a book of present-day parables. Through personal stories, she shares the lessons she has learned along her way to serenity - lessons that can help us lead the life we were meant to live. It may help us to see with new eyes, expand our awareness, and inspire us with an example of what one woman did, starting at age fifty, to reinvent herself. By taking time out and quieting the mind, it becomes possible to recognise and claim our amazing power, find the strength to move forward toward our dreams, and expand our perceptions of what life is about. This is a book to inspire curiosity, ignite imagination, foster enthusiasm, and support courage. By getting beyond our youth-centered culture, it recognizes the potential in all who are chronologically gifted and encourages us to live in possibilities. The world needs the consciousness, wisdom, compassion, and strength of its elders. It is time to acknowledge who we are and bravely step up to the plate and give it our all.
