More About This Book

Overview

In the tradition of such bestselling illustrated classics as Jonathan Livingston Seagull and Off to Sea Torregrossa's "The Man Who Couldn't See Himself" is an enchanting story. Whimsically illustrated, "The Man Who Couldn't See Himself" tells the story of a man who has lost sight of who he is. He is filled with only loneliness and little self-esteem. To fill this void, he buys himself a dog, but before long, they are both lonely. And what evolves is a sublime journey of a man to find himself again. In spite of life's daily demands and stresses in his business, he decides to make paper flowers - a compelling metaphor for how he's now chosen to look at life. The paper flowers find their way around and eventually make their way into the hearts of those whose lives they touch. One paper flower leads a beautiful woman to him and because he has been able to transform himself, he attracts true love. The magic of this story occurs at the moment the man decides to surrender himself to what he believes is his fate and comes to terms with his loneliness. However, instead of allowing his acceptance to become a dismal one, he demonstrates a shift in his consciousness and becomes open to the mystery of love. It is only then that he is able to let love enter his life and his acceptance of himself is what creates this possibility - not the expectation or the egoistic need for love.
