Watermelon Magic

Seeds Of Wisdom, Slices Of Life

Watermelon Magic

Foreword by: Jack Canfield
Watermelon Magic is talk from the soul using watermelons as a metaphor for life. Watermelons symbolize the slurpy happiness of life for Wally Amos (formerly known as “Famous Amos”). From his life experiences, Wally sees many parallels between humans and watermelons. Just as the vine connects watermelons and the umbilical cord connects mother and child, we are all connected by spirit. Wally shares his personal path to wisdom and tells how he never lost his humor, joy, and positive outlook on life in the process. He shows us how to overcome adversity and make healthy choices—how to reframe and rethink challenging situations in positive, optimistic, and uplifting terms.

A master storyteller, Wally believes we all have a choice in our own happiness—no matter who we are, no matter what we’ve been through—and his stories will touch you at the very depth of your soul. If these ideas and beliefs speak to you, grab them like slices of watermelon, devour them, and have fun! Look out for the seeds, and live life to the fullest!
