    1. I wasn t aware, at first, that I was in the middle of a story.The date was 3 February 2015 I was on a taxi queue at the SM Megamall Building A on my way to the SM North EDSA Mall to get my car Why I have to take a taxi from one mall to go to another mall to get my car is another story but it is not worth telling.Anyway, the next taxi cab arrived But it wasn t mine yet A youngish couple got it, a man and a woman, the woman carrying a boy of around 4 years of age, brown as bread, crying The three [...]


    2. While this was really excellent, I feel like there should be stories in this book.




    3. p29 Whether you are an old family, a new family or a family in the making, whether you be lover or friend, it is the experiences you share with others and the stories that you tell about those experiences afterward, and the tales you bring from that past and future that create the ultimate bond There is no right or wrong way to tell a story Perhaps you will forget the beginning, or the middle or the end But a little piece of sunrise through a small window can lift the heart regardless So cajole [...]


    4. The story told in this book is basically, or at least very similar to The Gift of Magi But it is a good story and I m sure most won t mind reading the story even if they have read it already.But this book is also about what is enough and stories The story told in this book answers the questions to what is enough It is not always about buying gifts for one another, but it is about the love we give another one and the things we share And the book express quite well how important stories are to our [...]


    5. New Age guru Clarissa Pinkola Est s rips off a story by O Henry, then suggests that O Henry s version and the one she claims her Hungarian aunt told her must have had a common ancestor in folklore Therefore the summary of her book says that she retells a tale popularized by O Henry Est s presents no evidence that O Henry retold an older tale, nor can I find any It doesn t appear that he popularized The Gift of the Magi, one of the most widely anthologized stories around He wrote it, i.e composed [...]


    6. Tout petit ouvrage de Clarissa Pinkola Est s non pas moins grand par son contenu L auteure, par le biais de contes qui appelle d autres contes , nous exprime l importance des r cits cont s aupr s de ses proches, ou avec des personnes plus loign es Des contes th rapeutiques par essence, transmis de g n ration en g n ration L importance de la parole et de l coute, une poque o nous passons plus souvent nos soir es scotch s devant la t l Mon dernier livre de cette auteure, lu dernier livre traduit e [...]


    7. Such a tiny book and so full of wisdom In the fourth generation, everyone had forgotten how to build the fire, and no one any longer knew just where in the forest one should stand, and finally, too, the prayer itself could not be recalled But one person still remembered the story about it all, and told it aloud And God still came.




    8. Very short book It s a retelling of the story The Gift of the Magi There is a message of love I liked it but this is weaker than many of her books.




    9. Wonderful little book about both what is enough and about storytelling folk lore Wisdom in 30 pages Amazing read Plan to read it aloud to someone you love.


    10. Pinkola Estes is the quintessential story teller and to have her share why the giving of stories is so important is, itself, as gift.



    11. Essentially O Henry s Gift of the Magi, which isn t a bad thing, but not what I expected Thus, a bit disappointing.
