One of my favorite authors, Donald Miller, just posted a chapter of his new book “A Million Miles in a Thousand Years” and I have to say I’m stoked. I really enjoyed “Blue Like Jazz” which seems to be the general favorite – but “Through Painted Deserts” is the one book I’ve read that really resonates with my soul.

In the book, Don and Paul drive a beat-up Volkswagen van from Texas to Oregon. The journey is the story, not the destination. Don hits a sweet chord when he writes about looking for the “why” in life instead of the “how”. I’d say that’s pretty much the recurring theme in the book – stepping back from a scripted life. And I’m all about that.

Anyway, the new book will be released on September 29, 2009.
