Gorgeous, amazing things come into our lives when we are paying attention: mangoes, grandnieces, Bach, ponds. This happens more often when we have as little expectation as possible. If you say, “Well, that’s pretty much what I thought I’d see,” you are in trouble. At that point you have to ask yourself why you are even here.

Love Anne Lamott. Read Bird by Bird a month or so ago. Practically inhaled it. Very witty and full of life lessons, but then she has been around the block a bit…
I haven’t read Bird by Bird yet, but I love her novels. Her personality really shines through her writing.
