Book Review: The In-Between

The In-Between
What is the next “Big Thing” in your life? Graduation? Marriage? First job? New job? Job promotion? Vacation? Retirement?

What if the really important stuff in life wasn’t the big moments, but the waiting, the “biding your time”, the filler … the In-Between?

And what if you missed the really important stuff because you were looking right past it, not even seeing it, because you didn’t even think it was the important stuff?
