Somehow: Thoughts on Love

We rated this book:


If someone is only as sick as their secrets, Anne Lamott is the healthiest person around. In all her volumes, she lays bare the foibles and sins of the past, giving the reader hope for new beginnings and resurrection of the soul. In Lamott’s books, we learn about her very personal journeys through adversity, but also, human kindness. We meet her church group, her neighbors, her longtime friends, her husband, and those she has lost through illness and hard travels. She vividly details the transformation of the human spirit. Her faith and prayer are lynchpins of her life.

Halfway through the book, Lamott gives us the “launch code when under attack”—gratitude, chores, chocolate, service, breath, and nature. A few delightful pages past that is a gift of an acronym: WAIT, otherwise stated “Why Am I Talking?” This small volume is an antidote for life today. It should be read at bedtime for a restful sleep. There is hope and it resides in the human spirit.
