It's been over ten years since Robert Fulghum has published a book of his essays, but he is back and in fine form with What on Earth Have I Done?, encouraging listeners to slow down and pay attention to the miracles, sometimes hilarious and sometimes serious, that can be found around us: trick-or-treating with your grandchildren dressed like a large rabbit, pots of daffodils in mid-November, a view of the earth from outer space, the mysterious night sounds of the desert, and the friendship one can strike up with someone who doesn't share the same language. Fulghum shows us that life's big questions-"What have I done with my life?," "How do I see myself?," "How do others see me?," "What will I be doing next?"-are best answered by appreciating the people in our communities, the members of our family, the world around us and our place in the solar system. What on Earth Have I Done? is classic Fulghum that shows us the wonder of everyday living with two feet planted firmly on the earth, one eye on the heavens and, at times, a tongue planted firmly in cheek.
