A book is like a friend. We understand the world and life, or even observe ourselves through texts, and have a deep realization of oneself that we are not alone. PMQ invites different people from design and culture sectors to recommend a book, so that you can enrich yourselves as book therapy.
Why would you recommend this book?
Carmen＠cuddlescuddle: Our heart is fragile and precious, both inside and outside. The pulse reminds us we are still alive, it moves like the rhythm of life, allowing our drifting emotions to regulate under the soil and the glimmer at our inner garden.
Yataro Matsuura's book is easy-to-read, just like a stunning dessert served after a full dinner, always telling us that we may get unconsciously restricted in our daily: too obsessive on "You can only do this'' attitude. Sometimes we have been absent for the dinner with our beloved one because of the tight schedule. We may think about how happiness is like when you feel happy, hesitating on what did people give when you feel thankful…… Also, when you think you got nothing, try to think of some plants that are still wonderful even though they won't bloom. It is beautiful to be alive and grow naturally.
This book is like a warm whisper talking about interpersonal relationships, confidence, listening, and self-value to embrace your unsatisfactory. Recommend to the meticulous one and do the inner talks together, cultivate your heart with your ‘treasure seeds’ every day.
