Sometimes you can judge a book by its cover! (Two books, in this case.) Bold, vibrant, textured oilcloth-like covers are a perfect prelude to the vivacious and invigorating ideas that fill every page of these two Fiesta of Happiness books. Each page delivers a lively, paragraph-length nugget of wisdom'part peptalk, part poetry, part affirmation, part philosophical inquiry'that speaks directly to the reader. Each is a call to action, a rousing invocation to live life more fully and realize the depth of our human potential. Take the Unexpected Path makes a compelling case for breaking out of the usual routine, expanding your horizons, and letting life take a more adventurous course. From the silly to the serious, this book is filled with ways to brighten your own or someone else's day by doing something surprising, unusual, and wonderfully unexpected. A sample entry is titled 'Designs on Life':'Be the architect of your moment.Plant a garden in your imagination,Let the trees and flowers tower above the rooftops,Then rearrange the houses in your neighborhood. . . .'
