It’s rare for me to be moved to tears by a book, yet it happened the other day whilst reading Mitch Albom’s Tuesdays with Morrie.
Though the ending was clear from the beginning, the final moments of Morrie’s life so wonderfully set down in words by Albom spoke to my heart. It is one of those books I believe anyone can find meaning and beauty and wisdom in.
Being moved by a book, a piece of music, a tender moment, is a richness beyond money. Especially as sentiments are many times suppressed before they reach the surface of existence, denied space in a world crowded by a pretence of indifference.
I feel lucky to have learnt to cry as an adult, having forgotten this precious ability I suppose during those years in which it was not considered the ‘done thing’. Today, even if they don’t occur often, I am not afraid of tears.
Perhaps you would like to share a book title which has moved you or wish to add your input in general on this matter. If so, please leave a comment below. In any case, thanks for letting me share these words with you right now.
