In a villa in rural France, Daniel S. Wolk finds that the only door lacking a key teaches a lesson in seizing opportunity--At an Israeli cemetery, he recalls an old man searching for his parents' tombstone to remind us of words that should be said before it's too late--And in these and many more uplifting anecdotes, he inspires us to pursue our dreams today, not tomorrow, because--
THE TIME IS NOW.
With wisdom and humor, Rabbi Daniel S. Wolk quotes the Torah, his grandmother, Robert Frost, Samuel Beckett, and a junk peddler with equal ease, stimulating our minds as deeply as he touches our hearts. His sixty vignettes show you how to get the most out of every day, including--how to begin your life right now--lessons in breaking out of old patterns--ways to seek the positive in life--how to make time for relationships--the secret of living life twice--and much more.
