This is not just the title of the excellent novel that I have started reading
but it's what I'm struggling to attain in my life.
There are so many demands on our lives nowadays between work, family,
and hobbies that it's often difficult to get the balance right. Even the new
technologies which are meant to make life easier can end up enslaving us.
Who nowadays isn't reachable on their mobile phone leaving little time
to get away from it all.
Much as I love Pbase I sometimes think I spend too much time here so
I am trying to be more organised and strict with the time I spend
looking around and commenting. I think I will drop out of the monthly
challenge again for although it's a lot of fun it is also very time consuming.
And back to the book - it was recommended to me by a remarkable man
who gave up a career as a successful restaurant owner in Dublin and now
lives in the Tamal-Nadu region of India where he is involved with a
charity working to improve education, health and equality for those
living in rural communities.
