"There are only two ways to live our life, according to Albert Einstein: one is as if nothing is a miracle, the other, as if everything is a miracle. Life of Miracles along the Yangtze and Mississippi is a book how the impossible became possible, things that happened to me in China and America, to the people I grew up with, met and befriended along my journeys between the Yangtze and Mississippi. This is also a story about water, alive with spirits and energy, giving births to all sentient beings. We are water. The river runs through us. Those who live in harmony with water can ride the current of the universe-the secret of Tao, reaching all the way to the sea of miracles, one story, one droplet, and one wave at a time. Miracle is a state of mind, a way of living: how we face hardship, pain and tragedies, how we transform them into fuels for our journey, and transcend them to joy and hope. It's a book how ordinary people perform miracles every day, how we are touched, touching, all the time, across oceans and continents, across time and space, through our stories"-- Provided by publisher.
