Awesome blog Ryan. We should value our elders more, they’ve been through life and it is such a pity if their wisdom is lost.

Hi Tidi. I’ll have to remember that for the next time that I see him. If I get a punch I’m holding you accountable!

Thanks Lynn. My personal favourite is “A Man Called Ove” – a great reminder of the power of generosity and community.

Ah…so great to see Gogo’s smile. I will have to get two more books to add to my pile of ‘must read.””Abundance: The Future is Better Than You Think” and “The Alchemist.” The others reside on my bookshelves. Pico Iyer writes of stillness succinctly….so I can pick it up at will and reread when I forget the wisdom in being still. Great post…love to all. See you in November.

Hi Tutu. Gogo agrees on Pico Iyer – one that you can pick up again and again. Love from the team!

Wonderful blog Ryan. We discover more about ourselves in the quietest moments than at any other time I think. I have read Paulo Coelho’s The Alchemist…it is a beautifully written book and now I look forward to reading the other books on Gogo Mo’s list.

Thanks Jill – enjoy them and as mentioned, “A Man Called Ove” is incredible. It is my pick of reads from 2014.
