We’re starting to get some rain around here. Unfortunately, the garden’s already suffered from the dry weather throughout June. The corn’s tasselling, but as my cousin’s mother says, it’s nothing to brag about….
I’ve been reading a book called Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. (Link to the book at Amazon can be found in the lower sidebar here.) It’s actually an autobiographical book, but it’s written with a novelist’s flair. It’s about a year in her life in which she spent four months in Italy studying pleasure, four months in India studying devotion, and four months in Indonesia seeking a balance between the two. She sets out on this journey because she’s wallowing in her problems and is looking for a way to solve the restless anxiety of her mind. Really, I didn’t think anyone could wallow better than me when I have a problem, but this woman is a pro and she’s SO funny about it–and also surprisingly insightful.
