Well this ‘You Are Here’ is very similar. Essentially it’s a travel diary, but it’s so much more. It nudges you to be ‘mindful’. Indeed ‘mindfulness’ is a state which the author encourages. An awareness of any given moment, coupled with the realisation that this moment is unique to you. It’s a transient state by definition, but one which can be repeated over and over. As Uncle Bulgaria might have said, it will have you ‘making good use of the things that you find’.
You see, the book can be serious one minute and irreverent the next. It has moments of humour to titillate you on one page and moments of karma on the next. So, why not throw in a Womble reference in a book review? It’s what I thought of in that moment, and it’s just the sort of thing the author is encouraging you to do. It doesn’t matter whether you want to write existential prose or a limerick about a waste paper bin, it’s whatever that moment brings. ‘Deface me’ the book suggests, if that’s how you feel...
This book will bring out the ‘you’ in you. Whether it’s reflecting over something that’s just happened, succumbing to the need to swear about the blister on your heel, or describing something about that bloke in the cafe opposite – the one with stubble like Desperate Dan, who’s holding an espresso in one hand and scratching his backside with a plastic fork with the other.
Who knows what the moment will bring? What you can be sure of is that ‘You are Here’ is a journal which will help you to record it.
This is a wonderful concept for a book. If you’re going on your travels make sure you get a copy.Read more ›

Was hoping for more information & guidance on mindfulness. Didn't realise it was mainly blank pages. Disappointing.Published 3 months ago by anne rhynas doble
