How to Keep the Long View

Do you have any time to read? I’ve got a suggestion, although it’s not for everyone. In addition to the distractions I mentioned in my last post, my book group is also reading War and Peace. I’m reading it in a fabulous new translation by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky. I’m loving it. And the issues Tolstoy raises are incredibly current: family life, religion and the spiritual life, good and bad leadership, and of course the matters of war and peace, as the title suggests. I’m sure I would never get through it without the discipline of the group deadline (I’ve got until December 16). But it’s truly a great piece of literature.

War and Peace may not be for you, but what are you reading that is helping you keep your perspective?
