Differences in perception


Recently I have read The way things look to me by Roopa Farooki. It is an amazing novel on the relationship between three siblings and their troubled childhood. The book switches between each of the siblings point of view and between the present and the past. It provides three different accounts on the same facts and takes us through changes in their perceptions about themselves and their world. Particularly informative is the description of the world from a highly functioning asperger s syndrome girl. From the complete lack of self-esteem of Asif, the older sibling, the self-hatred of Lila, the middle sibling, and a rigid and particularly poignant way of seeing the world of Yasmin, the books takes us on a journey of self-discovery with many twists on the way. The ending is a little sugar coated but it also provides us with hope. A tear jerker in a nice way.

About Malena 113

I am a light worker. I was born in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain in the early seventies and first came to England in my late teens. From then on I visited a few times, came to do some sightseeing, studied and finally settled down to work. Reiki found me in the early 2000 as a continuation of my spiritual development. I achieved Masters in Reiki in 2010 and have trained other people since. I am currently studying Theta Healing, another modality of healing. I also work with angels and archangels and they are now part of my everyday life.
