OAKVILLE, Ontario (PRWEB) April 24, 2015
Inspired by such authors as Karen Armstrong, Marcus Borg and other liberal thinkers, Lee Steels saw the need for a daily reader with a broad approach. Not being able to find one he liked, he endeavored to write his own. After 15 years and multiple transformations, his efforts finally bore fruit in the form of “Magic Apples” (published by Xlibris).
“Magic Apples” is a daily reader with 366 reflections to mull. The topics are broad in scope with a liberal approach. Drawn from the author’s experience as a teacher, parent, coach, musician and big kid, the reflections present an eclectic mix that offers much food for thought. This book offers a modern approach to traditional tales, new ways to love one’s fellow travelers and the chance to laugh at the human condition. There are plenty of opportunities to laugh, cry and to agree or disagree.
“It’s like the fountain of youth!” exclaims Steels. “Magic Apples” offers an escape from the autopilot of life’s daily humdrum. This liberal-minded book of daily meditations works to enhance one’s life-long learning skills and revitalize one’s sense of purpose.
