Who is anne lamott dating
She possesses a singular concoction of astute social insight, self-deprecating humor, and neo-Christianity.She throws the covers off life’s underbelly while somehow managing to inject hope.She infuses her storytelling with Christian principles and Zen insight, and manages all this without sounding preachy.This spirituality helps keep her mind open to moments of grace in unexpected places, like finding common ground with strangers during a long flight delay, or appreciating warm gloves and shelter after a hard fall on the ski slopes.She says it’s not only OK to yell, scream and cry, it’s probably necessary to receive the best gifts of grief: “softness and illumination.” Lamott often seeks solace in nature and uses hikes in the woods or a walk on the beach as a peace tonic, and a reminder to stay in the now.She says you can reach your dreams if you’re willing to “fall in love with your own crazy, ruined self.” That love takes time to grow.Alas, no love connection, but she finds satisfaction in conquering the awkwardness and fear of dating.In several essays on dying with dignity and the mourning process, Lamott suggests grief is an individual experience with no set timetable or behavior rules.
