Getting Through Customs
Getting Through Customs is a travel memoir told in fifteen true stories centered on the theme of transition. With passion, wit and tenderness, Sophia Tellen, author of Walking Into Moments, reflects on the ridiculous to the essential and conveys the wisdom gleaned in a lifetime's search for Truth. Sweeping through history, she revisits her early, middle and later life in many amazing places across continents. She discovers how to get through Customs without letting them take your goods; that escaping from ignorance is no mean task; that stuck in someone else's reality, it can take a mighty shout to break out; that pitched across the border, one's hidden baggage may declare itself on the other side; and that on a stormy crossing one may need to jettison all the cargo; finally, that Customs can be the least of obstacles, as life gives, takes and restores. Sophia Tellen's dynamic and vivid narrative style makes this book accessible to a wide range of readers. A veritable treasure trove of information.
