I like Anne Lamott now


I like the author, Anne Lamott, now. I didn’t before. At least I like this latest book. That may say more about me than it does her but maybe it means we’ve both evolved. But I do want to give this newest book a shout-out. It’s called STITCHES. It’s a very small and very short book but it’s laced with great insight.

Here’s some highlights.

“…….when you watch people under fire or evaporating, you realize that the secret of life is patch, patch, patch. Thread your needle, make a knot, find one place on the other piece of torn cloth where you can make one stitch will hold. And do it again. And again. And again.”

Then this one:

I know God enjoys hearing my take on how life should proceed, as I’m always full of useful advice. I’m sure God says either, “Oh, I do so love Anne’s selfless and evolved thoughts,” or else,”Jeez, What a head case.”
