She says: "Life is made of moments, small pieces of glittering mica in a line stretch of grey cement. It would be wonderful if they came to us unsummoned, but particularly in lives as busy as the ones most of us lead now, that won't happen. We have to teach ourselves to live, really live...to love the journey, not the destination." But how to live from that perspective? To fully engage in our days? Quindlen offers an understanding that comes from knowing how to see the view, the richness in living.Hide synopsis

I read it and loved it and promptly bought two more copies to give to friends! Quindlen presents a positive and though-provoking way of looking at life in a brief, easy to read format. For the first week or so after I got it, I read it every night before I went to sleep. Now, a few weeks later, I read it at least once a week. It really made me think about what is important in my life.
