Joan Woolley con Travel and Run for a Laugh: A Jolly Romp through Wildlife and History (English Edition)
As usual from Joan Woolley, author of bestsellers, Dog Days in France, and Puppy Wimbledon, Travel and Run for a Laugh is full of fun, philosophy, and useful nuggets of information for travellers and sports people. The author is a tennis professional, endurance runner, cyclist, and student of life, turning over the leaf litter of the forest floor of life, to search for all we often don't see in the normal rush of living. What happened before I passed through this place? What might happen after I am gone? Is there a different way of thinking about all this? These are some of the questions asked. Only time might supply some of the answers. The longer you go from your date of birth, the more you can draw precedents from things that have happened in the past. There is that light bulb moment when you think this is the piece that fits into my jigsaw of life. The whole of life comes under laughter, and the moment we step out over our doorstep, we are travelling. We are travelling all the time in our minds. The design of our bodies is for running. If we are lucky enough to be able to walk, we put one foot in front of the other. The next ingredient is to add a bit of a bounce, and you are now a runner. Come with me on a romp through time, place, history, sport, wildlife, and laughter. There is not a moment to waste; take that journey now. Anyhow I'll just chat to you as I run.
