By the River Piedra, I Sat Down & Wept – Paulo Coelho

Nov 03

Have you ever read the perfect book at the perfect moment in time for you?  This short, easy read by Paulo Coelho was that for this gal.  This is the story of Pilar..a woman with a distinct life plan.  A sudden reconnection with a childhood friend/love sparks questions about love, faith, and trust in the unknown.  The story explores all of the feelings of love; the passion, the obsessive behavior, the idea of loving something more than you love yourself.  It also delves into the uncertainty of new love..”…..you promise to change your behavior in certain ways-and you feel more and more anxious until your loved one arrives.  But by then, you don’t know what to say. The hours of waiting have been transformed into tension, the tension has become fear, and the fear makes you embarrassed about showing affection.”  Oh, hit me where I live and breathe Paulo.  As someone who has just had their heart stomped on-twice- in the last year, this book spoke to my heart and restored some faith.  To love someone…and have them love you, must indeed be divine.  “All love stories are the same.”  True or not…I have to believe that someday it will happen for me.
