Walk and touch peace every moment.
Walk and touch happiness every moment.
Each step brings a fresh breeze.
Each step makes a flower bloom.
Kiss the Earth with your feet.
Bring the Earth your love and happiness.
The Earth will be safe
when we feel safe in ourselves.
- Thich Nhat Hahn
"You must teach your children that the ground beneath their feet is the ashes of our grandfathers. So that they will respect the land, tell your children that the earth is rich with the lives of our kin. Teach your children what we have taught our children -- that the earth is our mother. Whatever befalls the earth, befalls the sons of the earth. If men spit upon the ground, the spit upon themselves.
This we know. The earth does not belong to man; man belongs to the earth. This we know. All things are connected like the blood which unites one family. All things are connected.
Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons of the earth. Man did not weave the web of life; he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself ..."

Hey there Shara, hope you're good...thanks for the friend invite, have accepted :)
Yup, only done Life Expectancy so far.. but it was sooo good that I went out and bought about 10 or so more Koontz books - I couldn't help myself. They're on my shelf here if you're interested which ones. Mainly I'm a Stephen King fan and I always love his books..so I'm working through those and trying some other stuff in between each one. However, his new book is heading towards my eager paws very soon and I'm embarrassingly excited about getting that book. So all those lovely Koontz books begging to be read are gonna have to wait a wee bit longer :-) I thought Life Expectancy was so good, funny and dark too.. it's making me wonder if he's gonna be better than King :-) I'm fancying Sole Survivor next..or Odd Thomas...or..or.. too many to choose! I've been recommended Velocity too..but don't have that one..Hmmpfff.. Yup, always happy to talk about King or Koontz, or whatever! You seem to have a lot of strange and wonderful books on your shelf..even though there's a suspicious lack of Stephen King..but I can forgive u about that ;-)
Take care, see ya later
Just sending you a rather belated thank you for your advice about Odd Hours. I've since managed to buy the first 3 books too..so I'll be reading them in order soon, and have to say I am looking forward to them (I've only read 1 Koontz book). However, Stephen King's new book is out in November and I'm afraid that will have to take priority ;-)
