In, Reaching Back to Touch My Soul: Thoughts on Love, Laughter and Living, everyone has a chance to read about the parts of life that matter most: love, laughter, and living a meaningful life. In today's world, which is filled with so much nonessential data that clings to our mind like tissue paper to a shoe. Reaching Back to Touch My Soul gives us a chance to reconnect not only to each other but also to the often forgotten parts of ourselves. The stories and essays in the book came into the world as op-ed pieces for The Virgin Islands Daily News. From different times, places and themes they have emerged as a family of ideas and grown as one.
There are three major themes in the book. The first is Love, the second, Laughter, and the last Living
Choosing Love as the starting point was easy, according to author Linda DePass-Creque, "Love breathes life into everything else. It is from love that everything else flows" The theme Laughter is a potpourri of topics and commentary written to make you smile as you take in its message. The last theme in this delightful book, Living, explores many of life's "basic skills", including coping, understanding, tolerance, friendship and sometimes making sense out of nonsense!
With the wonderful illustrations of each theme , its humor, and its wise, down- to- earth philosophy, this book is well worth reading.
