I always like to stay current with Shirley MacLaine’s writing, to see what she’s up to and thinking about. This book is about her getting used to the idea of aging – I think she’s nearly 80 – , moving to what sounds like a permanent home in Santa Fe, and about her take on aliens. (For me, they may well be around, but I feel we have enough to do learning our lessons and doing this life well.)
As she’s organizing her bookshelves after the move, she’s looking back at the volumes and the artifacts she’s brought to her new home with her, and the synchronicities that brought them into her life.
Here’s one statement that just jumped off the page at me: ‘It is everyone’s individual decision to have as much healing as we are willing to receive.’ Vintage Shirley. If you’ve liked her other books, you’ll like this one.
