Have any of you purchased the new DVD called "The Secret?" It's unbelievable! It is a commentary on such a wonderful way to live life and to have a joyful one. Barnes & Noble...and every other bookstore has it, I'm sure. The latest hot selling book by the same name is a longer take, and one I want to skip so I'll have more time to stitch, but the DVD is awesome! Once you see it, you want to share it with everyone. As a spiritual person, I've been practicing the "secret" for many years, but this new perspective causes one to reflect on the idea of visualizing what good things we want in our lives every day, and achieving a sense of joy. It's well worth the cost and well worth sharing with family and friends. My DD bought it and we watched it together.
Also, DD treated me to a couple of books at Borders! So nice to have a grown daughter who can do this once in a while. I love it! I chose "Forever Amber," by Kathleen Windsor and "The Road," by Cormac McCarthy, which is Oprah's new choice. And, I am loving these books about Marie Antoinette. I read everything written about her!
The book on the upper left is "Abundance." If you have never read "Forever Amber," you have the biggest treat in your life! I read it when I was in my 20's and I'm reading it again. It is a classic with lots of detail about fashion, interiors, the courts of England, the plague and love and intrigue. It's one of my all time favorite novels. It's as big and as good as "Gone With the Wind!"
