Copyright (c) 1991, Eurodisc Ltd. How much do you like your life? Is there anything about it that you would change? I suspect that most of us would find some- thing to change, Some of us might want to change quite a lot. Others might find that life is going quite well, yet would want to fine-tune cer- tain aspects of it. However, this is not so for the woman in Lisa Stansfield's new hit "Change." She says that she "wouldn't change a single thing." Apparently this decision is based on a fear that if she changes anything, it will negatively affect her ro- mance. She does not realize that her attitude likely will become a problem because change is inevitable in life. The very effort to keep everything the same creates stress. Rather than suppress our growth, we should trust ourselves and God that changes will help us become better persons. This kind of trust does not mean we should abandon changes to fate or to life's uncertainties. Once we accept change we can allow our feel- ings, interests and dreams to grow, plore more of life and develop our Consider the relationship song, Most of the lyrics describe the girl'.' ruination to stay in the relationship.

Chinen. 7brcher (LosAngeles, 1992). 238 pp., $18.95. Reviewed by Father James Gilhooley, Catholic News Service As Calvin Trillin, the liter- ary critic, might wryly ob- serve, a 62-year-old should not be reviewing "Once Upon a Midlife," a book subtitled: "Classic Stories and Mythic Tales to Illuminate the Mid- dle Years." The middle years for me are history. And, since I am writing this review, the presumption must be that mine were sufficiently illumi- nated. But let us begin! Dr. Allan B. Chinen has collected 20 middle tales from countries such as Japan, China, Egypt, Russia, India and Polynesia.

They are also different from elder tales. It is probably the latter I should be reading and pon- dering. Whether the elders live happily ever after re- mains to be seen. Each chapter begins with a short middle tale. The psy- chiatrist-author then offers his own interpretations and insights. I found myself enthusiasti- cally nodding in agreement with many of his conclu- sions, scratching my head about a few, and strenuously disagreeing with some. However, one point I do guarantee. The reader will be charmed by the 20 middle tales. My own favorite bears the engrossing title. "The Wife Who Became King." For Chinen's pains in collecting these tales I certainly tam grateful. And so will be story- tellers everywhere. But would these tales alone impel me to purchase this volume for $18.95 plus tax? I think not. However, make a point of examining it at your friendly neighborhood public library.
