I think most of the end of the book "Drawing Heat," made me incredibly sad. It made me think about time and loneliness. The Wild Man was so caught up into his career that he missed out on so many other things in his life. Was it really worth it? I think this made me think about my future a lot as well. I'm not sure what career I would like to pursue one day (if you have any ideas, don't be shy to share them with me) but I've always imagined myself being a very career driven adult who didn't spend a lot of time with family or doing other things. I honestly thought/think that I want my life to be centered around my career. However, reading this made me think so much harder about what I would be missing. The Wild Man wasn't able to get to his family when there was something important and spent most of his time by himself, traveling for his career. It reminded me an awful lot of the Hallmark Christmas Specials. One of my favorite things to do during the Christmas season, is to sit around and watch these types of movies. Most of the plots consists of an overly career-minded person realizing that their career isn't the most important thing in life...love and family is. I can't help but to picture Wild Man's life being an odd type of Christmas Special featured on Hallmark channel.
