From time to time we all need to examine our lives and realize everything is not always black and white. But, like a panda, our outlook on life can get a bit fuzzy at times. Ray Strobel's panda philosophies are just the thing to help bring life back into focus. In Ray Strobel's gift book "A Black Eye Isn't the End of the World," photos of adorable pandas illustrate uplifting messages about basic life principles. The charming animals provide a cuddly, warm perspective on handling painful setbacks ("When life knocks you down, nap"), establishing camaraderie ("Share more than small stuff"), maintaining friendships ("Don't hog the log"), and managing everyday stress ("When panic threatens, go for a stroll"). Some more examples of the panda philosophy: * "When you cuddle, cuddle with conviction." * "Frolic while you're still frolicable." * "Look at life sideways." * "Tickle, don't scratch." "A Black Eye Isn't the End of the World" is an ideal gift for anyone who needs a quick and thoughtful pick-me-up.show more
