Blog Is Officially Launched!

Hey Everyone!

Well I have officially launched my blog, and I again want to welcome you all to it! I’ve already started reading “The Diving Bell And The Butterfly” by Jean-Dominique Bauby. I have to say it’s pretty good, they’re short chapters and the book overall isn’t anymore than 200 pages.  The author is very sarcastic at times but given what he went through I don’t blame him.

The book if you’re interested, in following along, the book is about a man named Jean-Dominique Bauby, and in 1995 the 43-year-old, editor of the French Elle suffered a massive stroke that left him completely and permanently paralyzed, a victim of the “locked in syndrome”.  The man finds himself imprisoned in an inert body able to communicate only by blinking his left eye.  The miracle is that in doing so, he was able to compose the memoir.

I really think you all would enjoy it! I will keep you posted as I read along! Thanks! And welcome again!

- Daniela
