Gaining Perspective With Folklore Chris Earley’s Book of the Month
As we wrap up our 2018, a little perspective might be just what we all need to have a valuable 2019. That’s why I suggest readers check out “The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho this month. This short, simple read brought real life lessons up to the surface for me, and I know readers will find the same touching meanings. Coelho, a Brazilian writer whose works have been translated into English, writes a compelling folklore and fable-esque tale about a sheepherder in Europe. His writing style is simple, easy, and full of quotable lines. Many readers like myself have garnered a new take on life from this quick read. The story begins with sheepherder Santiago. He yearns for life outside of his home village in Spain, so he ventures off on an expedition to the pyramids to try to make a name for himself. On his journey, he crosses paths with a duo who tell him about an old tree and a church in Spain where a pot of gold has been hidden. It’s an elusive treasure that has yet to be found by this pair, and Santiago’s interest is piqued. He’s spent his whole life trying to escape Spain, and now Santiago finds himself intrigued and pulled back to his home. “Tyler with Liberty Inspections did such an incredible job for a recent home inspection for us. We knew that this house needed some work, but after being slapped in the face with a detailed reality check, I don't think I could trust anyone, or any company, more than Liberty Inspections. Prompt, honest, and he doesn't miss a single thing.” -Jillian P. “I am a Realtor and have met many home inspectors. I was recently referred to Liberty through a presentation they hosted and decided to give them a try. The inspection was for a property I was purchasing. The inspection was performed by Tyler. When we arrived at the property, he was already on the roof checking its condition. Tyler is super friendly and willing to answer all questions. I have been to many of these, but I have to say, he covered EVERYTHING! Kudos to Tyler and Liberty — I will definitely be referring them to my clients.” –Heath L. OUR CUSTOMERS SAY IT BEST
The main lesson I learned from “The Alchemist” was perspective. Sometimes you just need a healthy dose of context to pull you back from your own ledge. We all experience points where we are in
bad places in our lives, and Coelho’s writing reminds readers that it could always be worse. Sometimes the place you’re trying to leave is exactly where you need to be.
I loved the time I spent reading this book, and I would suggest it to anyone who needs an extra push. Without too much nonsense, it’s a self-help book that masquerades as a novel. It’s a story you can tell your kids and one with a lesson for any age.
Find “The Alchemist” on Amazon or your Kindle app. Be warned, though: You won’t want to put it down once you start.
