The Noticer Points of Interest
It's no fun keeping your favorite places all to yourself. That's why we have compiled this list of points of interest in Orange Beach and Gulf Shores, Alabama that appeared inThe Noticer and have special meaning for New York Times best-selling author Andy Andrews.
Andy’s newest New York Times Best-Seller is now on CD! This 4 hour CD set, Read by the Author, will provide you with a fresh and insightful perspective on how people can change their view on the world, find strength, and move beyond their problems.
Orange Beach, Alabama, is a simple town filled with simple people. But they all have their share of problems—marriages teetering on the brink of divorce, young adults giving up on life, businesspeople on the verge of bankruptcy, and many of the other obstacles that life seems to dish out to the masses.
Fortunately, when things look the darkest, a mysterious old man named Jones has a miraculous way of showing up. A man of indiscriminate age and race with white hair and wearing blue jeans, a white T-shirt, and carrying a battered old suitcase, Jones is a unique soul with angelic-like qualities. Communicating what he calls “a little perspective,” Jones explains that he has been given a gift of noticing things about life that others miss. In his simple interactions, he speaks to that part in everyone that is yearning to understand why things happen and what they can do about it.
Based on a remarkable true story, The Noticer beautifully blends fiction, allegory, and inspiration. It provides simple, yet powerful distinctions about love, relationships, value, and integrity and will inspire readers to take that first step toward a major life change.
From the Pages of the Book ...
"So how did you know my name? No big deal, really," he shrugged. "I been watching you for a long time. I been around."
I watched him for a moment, considering his answer, then slowly nodded and retreated into the darkness for his coke. Returning with two cans, I handed one to the old man. Popping the top, Jones shifted in the sand and crossed his legs. "All right," he said, taking a long pull from the red can, "let's get started."
"Get started . . . what?" I asked flatly.
Jones set the can on the sand and said, "We need to start noticing a few things. We need to check your heart. We need to gather a little perspective."
"I don't even know what you are talking about," I said. "And I don't know who you are." "Fair enough," he smiled. "Well, let me see now . . . How do I explain?" He leaned toward me quickly. "As for who I am, call me Jones."
"I am a noticer," he said. "I notice things that other people overlook. And you know, most of them are in plain sight." The old man leaned back on his hands and cocked his head. "I notice things about situations and people that produce perspective. That's what most folks lack—perspective—a broader view. So I give them that broader view . . . and it allows them to regroup, take a breath, and begin their lives again."
