“My new found spirituality made it essential to me that we not battle. So this was my position – I would neither defend myself from him, nor would I fight him. For the longest time, against he counsel of all who cared about me, I resisted even consulting a lawyer, because I considered even that to be an act of war. I wanted to be all Ghandi about this. I wanted to be all Nelson Mandela about this. Not realizing at the time that both Ghandi and Mandela were lawyers.” – Elizabeth Gilbert

The sum of Eat Pray Love is greater than its parts, but the parts are pretty good. Especially the one about the lawyers.

Eat Pray Love

Two days ago I bought Elizabeth Gilbert’s memoir. It was newish, ninety-nine cents and in a thrift store.

I read it tonight.

I’m giving it to my mother tomorrow.

I hope she, like me, reads it in the spirit of a certain ninth generation Balinese medicine man – below the neck.

Now, off to yoga. Not because of the book, but because cortisol is killing me.
