"The Enthusiast" by Charlie Haas
This main character in this Charlie Haas novel edits quirky "Enthusiast" magazines, and deals with the consequences of an attachment to ideals and self-discovery.
Until 2004, I was an independent and active woman -- a former airline sales exec and then a high school educator. Then my body kept betraying me. I was finally diagnosed with ALS/Lou Gehrig's Disease -- confined to a wheelchair and unable to speak. With life at a slower pace, I learned to live a more conscious and mindful life -- buying, eating and other choices. I listen instead of talking, and I observe instead of running and rushing.
