Happy Birthday Paulo Coelho

Yesterday was the birthday of author Paulo Coelho. I have only read a few of his stories (see my Valkyries post dated 4/6/11 under Books category) but I have like 2/3 so far and look forward to reading more. I think Mr. Coelho has lead an interesting life. I recently found out that besides his brief stint in jail in Brazil, which he talks about in “The Valkyries,” his parents had committed him to a mental institution. This was apparently after he told them he wanted to be a writer! Oh my!

This is from the Alchemist: “Everyone seems to have a clear idea of how other people should lead their lives, but none about his or her own.”    Paulo Coelho

Happy 64th birthday Mr. Coelho.

If you like Paulo, his blog is paulocoelhoblog.com. He has some interesting things to say.
