okay, so i'm prolly the only woman in
the vast sea of women who read 'eat,
pray, love' who wasn't totally thrilled
everyone i know loved it.
i thought it was 'okay.'
so if that was the reason to go listen
to a lecture by the author, i would never
but i saw her give a lecture on the interent.
click here if you haven't seen it, and want to.
i was totally taken with her from this
lecture. loved her.
looked her up. saw she was speakin' in d.c.
and went with josh and a couple friends last
i loved her from the first moment she opened
her mouth. she was totally real. totally totally
real. told great story after great story that
made us laugh, think, and at times tear up.
she said she couldn't solve anyone's problems,
she couldn't get her own life together.
and i loved her for that.
but it was the simplest sentence that brought
tears to my eyes....
she closed her talk with it...it went something
'what i'd like to leave you with is to remind
you to be kind to yourself.'
that was it.
it was awesome.
she didn't have any answers.
she had stories.
she had herself.
she had real.
and the entire audience soaked up her realness.
why is it we're so hungry for real???
why is that so hard to find???
i have no idea.
but i treasured her offering herself last nite.
and i am carrying her around with me big time
