Human Traces by Sebastian Faulks fed my thirst for science. The intricately crafted plot touches on issues of epigenetics, morality, and humanity as the two protagonists delve into the world of medicine in an effort to discover the source and ease the suffering of the mentally insane. What fascinated me was the vastly different social norms and approaches to dealing with: women, the afflicted, and the killing of animals in the African plains. Set in the late 1800’s, this work of historical fiction provokes deep introspection. Two thumbs up
If you don’t have time to read an entire novel, might I suggest a short story or two. Here are a few that might pull at your heartstrings
Where are you going, Where have you been?
I was talking with a friend the other day and he was lamenting the fact that he “just can’t stick with the gym” for more than a few months. He was depressed that lifting weights wasn’t fitting with his lifestyle. I reminded him that living a healthy and balanced life is flexible and dynamic. Playing baseball and going rock climbing on the weekend is a much better fit for him. And that’s OK! If you need a bit of encouragement to find the right fitness plan, check out my ebook.
