Another of my very favorite authors is Anne Lamott. If you haven't heard of her, you MUST check her out. She's Christian but extremely edgy!! (And ouch-y!) Love her. (Don't let the photo scare you. She has a lot to say about the hair in her books!)
I recommend you start with her Traveling Mercies: Some Thoughts on Faith.
In the wake of my entry yesterday on aging...thought I'd share this Lamott-ism with you today.
"All the older people who are thriving have stayed physically active--there are exceptions, and everyone knows someone who smoked two packs a day and had a few social beers with breakfast every morning who lived to be 85, but you have to assume that this won't be you. "
From Plan B: Further Thoughts on Faith.
