Big Strength in Small Packages: A Journey Through Asian Stories
a book list by Ren
I wanted to share a list of books that have helped me overcome what I consider to be the lowest point of my life.
It was not at all intentional that I seek refuge in the Japanese and Chinese characters of these novels, however one book lead to another and within a year and a half , not only was I healed but I was convinced I had to have been a Geisha in my past life!
Each of these remarkable stories are beautiful, fragile, vivid, captivating and just like a kimono — they soon became "a thing to wear" for me, as I learned from the women in these novels that with self discipline, control and patience — I, too could rise above the darkness and see the light of life again. More importantly, I learned the importance of relationships between people, those we cherish, those we take for granted and those we overestimate the value of.
