Hope for the Flowers
Man, this book was one hard book to find.
I remember when I was shopping for random stuff at a bookstore last year, I came across a book which I don’t remember anything about except for the line “except those who have given up completely”.
The line stuck with me well, maybe because that time, I believed I have given up completely.
Then, as 2012 started, I browsed through You, Me and Charlie and saw a review for this book and was like, “I know this.”
I wasted no time, since that was my promise for 2012. And finally, bookstore after bookstore, I was able to find this one stacked under loads book inside a highly disorganized bookstore and a (mind you) high end mall somewhere in Eastwood.
Then, since I was so unfortunate at work that I didn’t have work packages, I found time to read it in one sitting and yeah, the magic happened.
This is a story of two caterpillars learning the meaning beyond their metamorphosis.The story taught me so much about the importance of dreams and the process of achieving it; of what’s really important, of what really matters.
It’s a simple story yet, the simplest stories touch your life the most. It’s a story of two caterpillars yet, one of them could be you.
