Eat, Pray, Love is a book I have had on my "borrowed" shelf for a very long time. It's my mother's copy. She read it as part of her book club, and really enjoyed it, although it's interesting to me that I find it hard to picture as a book she would be so enthusiastic about. For those of you who haven't read it (and there are a few of you, I know) it chronicles a year in writer Elizabeth Gilbert's life, a healing year after years of very painful personal events. And I really, really like her. I like her a lot more than I expected, which could perhaps be what happened to Mom too. I'm looking forward to reviewing this one.
Also, I'm changing the format of these entries, because I don't like what this template does with a quote at the bottom of an entry -- it's hard to read. Shuffling things about! It's crazy, people!
From Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert, p228:
If you tell them you don't know where you're going, or that you're just wandering about randomly, you might instigate a bit of distress in the heart of your new Balinese friend. It's far better to pick some kind of specific direction -- anywhere -- just so everybody feels better.
