Books tell us that there are a million ways to better ourselves.
Some outline the ten best ways to make friends with our money. Others want to help us to shed forty pounds without much effort. And the ones that promise to bring us every joy in the universe just by thinking about them, well don’t get me started.
The one sure thing that these books all have in common, besides pointing out just how miserable and drab our lives will continue to be without them, is in their ability to raise us up. To give us a heightened perspective from which to view the world.
No, not in some spiritual sort of way.
I mean physically. At the dinner table. When placed under our bottoms.
My Kindle just doesn’t seem to cut it.
