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.
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. 🙂
