I went and spent my gift cards for the bookstores today. I replaced my Medieval Calligraphy book that got lost in the move, bought a book with the startling premise that Chaucer was murdered, and (because of this community) I bought two Pema Chodron books, The Places That Scare Us and The Wisdom of No Escape, both of which seemed intriguing. We shall see how helpful Buddhism is. *grin*
Any recommendations on which I should read first? I was leaning toward The Wisdom of No Escape, having just come off a suicide attempt a week or so ago.
