Over the past few years, I’ve written almost 100 blog posts on all types of spirituality-related subjects. But week after week one of my oldest columns gets the most Web hits—double and triple the number of views as my next most popular post. It’s called “The Wisdom of Donald Shimoda”.
Shimoda is one of two main characters in the book Illusions by Richard Bach, an author best known for his more popular (and I think less compelling) Jonathan Livingston Seagull. I’ve read Illusions a half-dozen times and after bouncing around various travel bags, my paperback copy is now coming apart at the seams, held together by a rubber band.
