This is the second time I've seen Anne Lamott and whether she's talking about birthday cake or writing discipline, she's a deep sigh of satisfaction. I wanted to write down everything she said, but she's such a great speaker that to do that while she's talking would be counterproductive. I did make note of this, however, "The amount you know any day is sufficient." How brilliant is that?
Guardian angels come in all sizes. Mine's a white chick with dreadlocks who knows a whole lot about substance abuse, has a wicked sense of humor and is so spiritual and honest when she writes that she makes me want to step it up a notch.
