As for me, I have begun reading Don't Worry, Be Grumpy by the inimitable Ajahn Brahm, a Theravadan Buddhist monk located in Perth, Australia. It is a BEAUTIFUL collection of 108 amusing anecdotes that show the world through his perspective. I highly recommend it.
Perhaps even more wonderful is how I got it: my good friend Renee Swindle attended a retreat featuring Ajahn Brahm, met him, meditated with him, bought the book for me, and had him sign it! I'm a lucky man to know such wonderful people.
And for those who do not know Renee, please visit www.reneeswindlebooks.com and check out her catalogue. She's a wonderful author and an even better human. I urge you to read one (or all) of her books!
