What is it?

The 2015 book Blessed: A Trip Through Belize by the author Moment Johnson.

What is it about?

This is how Goodreads describes this book:

Blessed tells the story of the author’s seven month journey through Belize.

A simple tale of islands and jungles.

Discovery and kindness.

Reflection and contemplation.

A mixture of the Belizean lifestyle, internal discoveries, profound insights, and poetic glances of nature.

Everything comes together in this story in perfect harmony.

With no real purpose or plan, Moment sets out to discover a different way of life.

Opportunities appear at every corner, and what may seem like a setback at first glance truly becomes a blessing in [disguise].

Her quest leads her to spending seven weeks in solitude on forty acres in the Belizean rainforest.

Step inside the author’s mind and experience a slice of Belizean paradise as she experienced it.

Final Thoughts

I probably finished reading this book two months ago, I wanted to do a more thorough post about this book because I felt that it deserved it, but recently I have stalled on most of my non-dream posts like this so now I am trying to just keep these posts shorter so that I can get myself back to finishing them again. 😀

I think that Moment did a good job making it feel like you were almost in her mind in a way, reading this book made me feel like a hidden passenger on her journey, one who also had access to some of her inner thoughts which made this book a more intimate experience.

During the times that I read this book it made me feel closer to Moment, like we had recently communicated online and / or like I had recently read one of her blog posts, and so even when she did not blog for a while it did not seem like it because I was still reading about her journey in this book so she did not feel absent during those times.

So well done Moment, and congratulations. 🙂

Visiting Libraries And Making Suggestions

Dream 1

This dream involved me visiting the various branches of The BP Library talking to coworkers, helping, encouraging them, and giving suggestions to help them improve at their jobs and to improve the libraries et cetera.

One of my coworkers that I know that I visited was my female coworker MH, she was at one of the smaller library branches, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

This dream was basically a continuation of the previous dream with me visiting fictional versions of The BP Libraries talking to some of my real coworkers during the day.

Outside one of the fictional libraries that felt like it was where the BB Grocery Store on Southside should be, I arrived by automobile, some of my coworkers were outside taking a break like my female coworkers MH and JB and someone else (maybe MA).

We talked, I gave them library suggestions and encouragement to help them with their jobs, and I remember telling JB that I was on page 15 of the book 11/22/63 that she had suggested (I read to that page before getting in bed).

There was something else going on in the dream of maybe some other group going around offer money and other incentives to help people improve at their jobs, and find things that they actually want to do in their lives.

Inside the library this group approached Cat Grant from the television show Supergirl about this, their approach seemed a bit shady like someone trying to bribe you, and so Ms. Grant was cautious and did not trust them so she questioned them about their intentions.

They claimed to just want Ms. Grant and others to be better at their jobs and to find what they really want to do in life.

But I woke up as I walked away from their conversation.
