Lessons for Life May 17, 2000
Dr. Chara's book is visually refreshing; the colored borders on each page along with the calligraphy identifying each virtue (new chapter) create a calming influence whereby you want to sit and become absorbed in the lessons for life. While Chara combines history, his own life's journey, and poetic excerpts, I found myself slowing down, and being uplifted through his easy way of sharing his life's stories, whether in his marriage, while teaching on the college level, or giving past experiences now a name. Colors bordering the shiny paper pages, which is slick to the touch, are so eye-appealling; combining to bring many emotions to surface; beauty and love are bountiful among the pages.
