Since I moved to EastCoast ,my commute for everyday office and home are more than half an hour.I choose to take bus because of the city where I came from doesn’t have electronic train and I am sick of looking at people who always gulp with phone.On Bus, I can get the Sun light by the windows,sometime rain drop on the window and quiet time. I take effort to get up early to finish my daily chaos and leave home early to take bus. If I am being lucky ,sometime the bus driver uncle must say “good morning to me”. And sometime wait for my hight heel run to catch up bus.
When I was in university, I used to fall asleep on our school bus. Yes, our University are out of city and it take at least an hour to reach there. Being five years in university daily trip to that route made me fall asleep easily whether movie vehicle I take. Surprisingly! these day I am quite awake and curving to read books. I done one short book in three days of my commute. And took two weeks to finish one book as well.
Travel far, pay no fare .. A book can take you anywhere. Once I reading about “A Full Life “ : book about Jimmy Carter, thirty-ninth President. He bring me from small Island of Sunny Singapore to 1900 American farm to White house,and through around the world with his experiences and political view. I haven’t no comment on his political views but I am admire his consistently learning, advocate community person, helping and setting up carter foundation. Start from his boyhood character to the end of Ninety year old man of peanut farmer, serve in Navy , back to home with start from scratch business man , Governor , president and Nobel price winner.
Then again, when I read about Farangi Girl Growing Up in Iran : book about the girl grow up in Iran with her glamorous American mother and her father a dashing Englishman.She hadn’t been pleasant life like Disney movie. But she been well written about her full dynamics family life with country in Iran, America. Some of her written are quite been difficult to me as second English speaker.I’ve been read two three time to understand some words and some time noted it down for few words. But it is beautiful biography to read.
Just recently I am finishing the book which I borrow last Saturday.I only took complete two days to finish the book and the feeling of finishing this book is quite sad to me. A stolen Life: Astonishing memorial book! I am quite sad and even my tear are come out when Jaycee met her mother.I couldn’t imagine how life she had been encounter.Just took this book by curiosity of what is life and it turn out remarkable book I ever read. Yes, it was happened and I sure there are many more life which we don’t know had been stolen.I am very glad Jaycee take effort to read this book and still resist to live life. I hope we could aware of our children and our environment more than as we did and support them as we can. I am quite sure ,we would meet kind of Phillip in our life and we even could not create one of them.
Now time to open my new book ….
