i heard a radio interview today with anne lamott which reminded me yet again of how much i love her writing, her spirit, her sense of humor. i remember reading operating instructions years ago, folding over page after page so that i could remember all these little nuggets of wisdom. one line i remember that is both so real and so hysterical goes something like this - my mind is like a bad neighborhood, i try not to go there alone. i just love that. if that line doesn't resonate with you then you're one of the lucky ones, i think.
and then, in the interview, she said this - laughter is carbonated holiness. now how perfect is that?
she was doing the interview because she's on a book tour and was speaking today at a community college in the area and now i'm so disappointed that i wasn't able to go. think i'll go to the library and get a stack of her books to make myself feel better.
another gray day here and some hail?! the poor forsythia!
here's some spring-y colors in the shop :)
