“The message of the story exudes throughout the pages of the book. Most people in retrospect – when all is said and done – have pretty ordinary lives. They may have a hidden well of profound thoughts and deep emotions that were never shared or never acknowledged. Unspent passion, unfulfilled dreams, and a fleeting legacy. What is left when that person is gone… some photos, a complimentary obituary, a few mementos?
The Stone Diaries offers up some powerful advice. Do not be complacent. Cherish relationships. Share your feelings. Make that bucket list and get started on it now. Carpe Diem.”
I love this.
