A few of the people at the office told me about this book, and I'm having fun with it.
It's called The Alchemist by an author named Paulo Coelho. It seems that it's well known because it's sold over two million books worldwide,
Paulo Coelho's story tells a charming story of an Andalusian shepherd youth named Santiago. The boy dreams to travel in search of a luxurious worldly treasure, and that's his driving passion.
But the tale of the gifts Santiago finds along the way demonstrates us more about the essential awareness of paying attention to our hearts, and understanding to choose our own direction from the omens strewn along life's path, and adhering to our dreams.
