John Goerzen: See The World Through the Eyes of a Child, and You Are Free

Because we see things so often, we see them less and less. Those who live in thanksgiving daily, however, have a way of opening their eyes and seeing the wonders and beauties of this world as though seeing them for the first time. Joseph Wirthlin
Today is about dirt. I had to learn about it, again, from my 2-year-old last week. She and I were playing outside something we have more time to do right now. She started to roll around in the grass, and asked me to play in the grass, too. As I got close to the ground, I inhaled the wonderfully sweet and earthy scent of spring soil. I hadn t smelled that in a long time. What an unexpected gift. This photo is of a child, having a fantastic time with dirt and water. The more bits of Kansas he had on him, the more shrieks of laughter I heard. It think most adults keep forgetting the joys of simple things like dirt. I am lucky to have children around to remind me. This week, I also had the opportunity to teach my 2-year-old the joys of making big splashes in mud puddles, so maybe I can also remind them on occasion.
See the world as if for the first time; see it through the eyes of a child, and you will suddenly find that you are free. Deepak Chopra

Konstantinos Margaritis: "Advanced Java EE Development with WildFly" released by Packt (I was one of the reviewers!)

For the past months I had the honour and pleasure of being one of the reviewers of "Advanced Java EE Development with WildFly" by Deepak Vohra. Today, I'm pleased to announce that the book has just been released by Packt: It was my first time being a reviewer and it was a very interesting experience. I would like to thank the two Project Coordinators from Packt, Aboli Ambardekar and Suzanne Coutinho, who guided me with the reviewing process, so that my review would be as accurate as possible and only related to technical aspect of the book. Looking at the process retrospectively I now begin to understand the complication of achieving a balance between the author's vision for the book and the scrutiny of the (many) reviewers. And of course I would like to thank the author, Deepak Vohra, for writing the book in the first place, I'm looking forward to reading the actual physical book :)
