Appreciating small pleasures in everyday life is the key to wisdom and happiness.
However, we all of us let countless daily opportunities to appreciate the marvels in our lives slip by unnoticed. Fortunately, there is a way to capture these wonders as they escape like sand through our fingers: celebrate them.
To confirm this, the journalist Lola Mayenco takes us on a fascinating tour of the most beautiful and significative festivals in the world and we discover, for example, that New Year is a good occasion to dedicate ourselves to profound personal change.
That walking on a mountainside allows us to renovate our connection with nature and that the best way to remember those no longer with us is with humour and happiness.
The author also immerses us in the lives of some of the most fascinating creators and thinkers of all time and we can see that there are a thousand and one ways of turning the ordinary into the extraordinary.
