The tribes challenge at SITS helped us form some great bloggy relationships. I’ve already done one blog post swap with Jacki. Now I’ve done a guest post for Meaghan! Read what I wrote on her blog here, and don’t forget to check out her blog while you’re at it!
Moving on to the Wandering Wednesday post…
Paulo Coelho is one of the most influential authors of this century. He is also one of my favorites. I’ve enjoyed all of his books – be it his best-selling The Alchemist, which has spent 150 weeks on the New York Times Bestselling list and is one of the Top 20 Bestselling Books from all times, or the beautifully romantic By The River Piedra I Sat Down And Wept, or the powerful 11 Minutes. Needless to say, I also keep up with Coleho’s blog. Here are some of my favorite posts from Paulo Coelho’s blog.
If you read Coelho, you’ll know that he talks a lot about personal legends. But what is a personal legend and how do you find it? Read The hero’s journey to find an interesting summary of the journey each and everyone of us must undertake if we want to live a live that justifies our existence and face our Personal Legend.
In The four forces, Coelho presents four short tales that illustrate how building our soul requires Four Invisible Forces, namely love, death, power and time.
What is happiness? is a question that most of us have grappled with, including Coelho, who shares his thoughts on this question in this interesting post.
I love the way Coelho shares his thoughts and time with his fans. In Twenty years later: Between Ekaterinburg and Novosibirsk, Coelho shares snippets of this thoughts, almost in diary fashion, as he travels through Siberia on a 90-day pilgrimage to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the first time he followed the Road to Santiago.
So, who is your favorite author? If you’re a Paulo Coelho fan, which of his book(s) do you like best?
