On the first leg of the book tour, somewhere between Vancouver and San Francisco, Air Canada destroyed my Rimowa suitcase.


I left it with the baggage handler in grand shape and it came down the conveyer belt three hours later battered, bruised, missing a wheel and with a huge dent in it. It looked like it might have been run over by the plane.


I calmly (I follow a book called Gratitude and Trust)...

Self serving for the most part. Some pathos when she talked about her childhood, but a lot of how fabulous I am going on.

“...if we run toward our fears, they lose their power and ultimately disappear"

"I think this is one of the giant lessons in adapting to age without losing your mind: we must let go of what was and begin accepting what is"

"'fate loves the fearless.' There is no better time to be fearless than in your fifties; if you really put your mind and your energy into it, you can make amazing things happen.”
Tracey Jackson, Between a Rock and a Hot Place: Why Fifty Is Not the New Thirty

“Arrange whatever pieces come your way.”
Virginia Woolf

“Since [narcissists] deep down, feel themselves to be faultless, it is inevitable that when they are in conflict with the world they will invariably perceive the conflict as the world's fault. Since they must deny their own badness, they must perceive others as bad. They project their own evil onto the world. They never think of themselves as evil, on the other hand, they consequently see much evil in others.”
M. Scott Peck

“We often need to lose sight of our priorities in order to see them.”
John Irving, Trying to Save Piggy Sneed

“We travel, initially, to lose ourselves; and we travel, next to find ourselves. We travel to open our hearts and eyes and learn more about the world than our newspapers will accommodate. We travel to bring what little we can, in our ignorance and knowledge, to those parts of the globe whose riches are differently dispersed. And we travel, in essence, to become young fools again- to slow time down and get taken in, and fall in love once more.”
Pico Iyer

“No matter how bad things are, you can always make things worse.”
Randy Pausch, The Last Lecture
