But half the reason I'm taking that cruise to Alaska in July is because my favorite philosopher and author is giving workshops on the cruise. I'm just finishing his second book (yes, without remembering hardly any of what I'm reading). So I just purchased his third book as well as his latest book. Even if I finish both, I'm still not caught up. He's probably written 10 or more books. But it's a start. And I do lots of highlighting as I read. So even if I can't remember what's in the book, I know what to peruse if I want to try and get a refresher later.
The third book I picked up was Tori Spelling's new biography. I made a post sometime in the last two years about her situation but I can't find it now. But basically I'm confused by the predicament that she and Dean found themselves in. They fell in love as soon as they met, but were both married to other people. They faced a difficult decision of either leaving their spouses and devastating the lives of their spouses (and in Dean's case, of his adopted children as well) or staying with their spouses but being miserable because they were in love with some one else they could never be with. Until I heard their story, I thought you just stay with your spouse no matter what. But their situation fascinated me, mostly because I have never nor will ever be in that situation or have to make that decision. So I'm pleased that I can finally read about that situation from Tori's point of view instead of just hearing speculation by tabloids and people who know nothing about them.
