About the Book
Asked what the goal of a writer is, author Anne Lamott responded, “To help others have this sense of wonder, of seeing things anew, things that can catch us off guard, that break in on our small, bordered worlds.”
This is what Jawad Mian achieves with Stray Reflections, an intimate account of his personal experiences and lessons learned. He delivers infusions of clarity and inspiration in short chapters for the quiet moments at home or at work.
In his own search for meaning, Jawad draws from such sources as Rumi, Emerson, Goethe, Buddha, Confucius, Seneca, and many others. To read Stray Reflections is to be immersed in the timeless wisdom of the great poets, saints, and philosophers.
This book is an antidote to the great angst of modern life.
