But tomorrow morning the embargo will be lifted! Five days exactly. And I'm no expert but my gums show promising signs of healing. . .
But anyway, without coffee I'm not in any real shape to take on the world this morning so I'm going to let Elizabeth Gilbert do it for me.
I hope all of you have read the book Eat, Pray, Love. If not you should. You just should. You may not like everything about it but it's a funny, wise book.
Even Ralf liked it!
It's about a female journalist who reaches a crossroads in her life when she realizes she's more excited about writing a story about a baby squid than she is about having kids with her husband. A messy divorce follows and after some wallowing she decides to travel the world and write a book. She goes to Rome to learn how to enjoy life, India to learn spirituality and Indonesia to explore love. And brings us all along on her hilarious vision quest.
I don't have a picture of Elizabeth Gilbert so I posted one of myself instead from a few years ago, before I could aford a decent hair cut, deep in thought about what to do with my life and thoughtlessly destroying the Earth one plastic water bottle at a time.
It also represents my current coffeeless state and how I feel about it.
Read the book. I think it will make you happy.
I've you've already read it and liked it, or if you are an aspiring writer, you may also enjoy Elizabeth Gilbert's TEDTalk. TED is an association that brings together the greatest thinkers and achievers of our time to speak to any topic for 20 minutes. They have lots of good talks.
I couldn't figure out how to embed this so just follow the link and enjoy!
