Eat, Pray, Love

Along with everyone else in America, I just finished Eat, Pray, Love. I know, you read it years ago. Still a fun, inspiring story.

It's snowing, but the sun's out. Strange.

I just finished it, too. Well, it was an airport read. I think Gilbert did a powerful thing in describing her spiritual search in such everyday terms. Not an easy thning to pull off, but she did and we all loved it!

Did you see the dual review in "The Week" (a favorite mag of mine)? I'm in the "meh" camp. Hey yeah, let me dump my partner and go on a self-serving world trip. Not!

Funny, kgs--my Dad subscribed me to "The Week" this year, as a Christmas gift! (Now I just have to get around to reading it each week...)

I recently listened to the audiobook and found it extremely enjoyable. I never got jealous of her ability to travel, but excited for the opportunity to find those lingering desires within me. Immediately when I finished the book, I quit my job which I had been hating but dealing with for a long time. I also meditate daily, and could not imagine stopping. The idea of a "self-serving" trip is stupid to me, for others to see it all as selfish when we are only here to live our lives. We have one chance to do what we love. The relationship had its issues, it just took her to gain an outside perspective to realize that there was trouble.
