Last night, I was SHOCKED!

It was late. Everyone else was asleep.

I was working on a long overdue review of my business earnings.

With increasing horror, I punched data into an Excel spreadsheet. Finally, when I clicked a button to add up totals…

I was STUNNED!

Income had dropped by a heart-wrenching 30% for the 1st half of 2019.

It felt like being punched in the gut.

But that wasn’t all.

The worse news is what’s happening in the 2nd half of 2019.

My net earnings for the last quarter were down…

By A Crushing NINETY-THREE Percent!

That’s right.

Revenue has dropped by nine-tenths over this period.

For a long time, I sat in silence in the dark room.

Thinking.

WORRYING!

And then, I made a plan.

Actually, it was just one decision.

I would start acting on it first thing in the morning.

Am I Your Friend, I Ask…

“What a contrast between us! You live a warm and glowing life, surrounded by loved ones whom you care for and who care for you; you are anchored in contentment. I drift about without rudder or compass, a wreck on the sea of life; I have… no friends for the wholesome development of my affects, or enemies for my malice.

Alfred Bernhard Nobel, in a letter to his sister-in-law

I was recovering from an attack of viral hepatitis. Home bound. Room bound. Going slowly crazy.

All day – and most of the night – I played TV video games until my thumb got swollen from punching the ‘Fire’ button! One evening, the phone rang. It was a friend calling with some exciting news.

“Did you know that X and Y got married? Why didn’t you tell me?”

Book Review : The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides

The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides

I’ve found my ‘Book of the Year

It may seem premature to declare it as early as July, especially given the stellar line up of titles on my ‘to read‘ list. But I think this won’t change by December (or even beyond) – because of just how brilliant Alex Michaelides‘ debut novel “The Silent Patient” is.

I picked it up to read over breakfast. All through a busy day, I was constantly tugged towards it, grabbing every chance to read a few chapters. With all my work done by 10 p.m., I sat in a quiet bedroom. The rest of my family was deep asleep.

I, however, was trapped inside a world created by a gifted writer, unable to return to my own until everything was resolved, explained, settled. That happened around one ‘o’ clock in the morning… and only then could I go to bed!

Look, I’m a prolific reader, and have devoured thousands of books. And so for me, to be a contender for ‘best read of the year‘, a book has to check several boxes. This one does.
