If you pay attention to the world around you and you are present and alert to what is happening, rather than ‘being asleep,’ you cannot help but notice what the possibilities are in a moment that can enrich or enliven and make a difference in your life.
New York City, NY (PRWEB) September 23, 2014
Few people would think of writing a book about traffic jams, but that is just what author Alice Rutkowski has done, but with a twist. Based on her own personal experiences with New York's congested traffic, Dr. Rutkowski offers eighteen delightful tales of inspiration and hope for those who struggle with life's mundane and tedious moments. Exit 8A is a fresh and funny look at changing perspectives and finding meaning in even the smallest aspects of the day.
While Exit 8A is an amusing look at a part of modern life that many people never seriously consider, there is a deeper message to the book as well. According to Dr. Rutkowski, "If you pay attention to the world around you and you are present and alert to what is happening, rather than ‘being asleep,’ you cannot help but notice what the possibilities are in a moment that can enrich or enliven and make a difference in your life."
The backdrop of the stories that she shares are some of the worst hours of the day for most people. New Yorkers regularly spend hours each day in a bus, train or a trolley going to and from work. Commuters tend to turn inward rather than outward, and this is where Dr. Rutkowski begins her work. By convincing others to focus for just a moment on the people and scenery around them, Dr. Rutkowski's book may help people look for deeper meaning in even the smallest of everyday events.
