Anne Lamott, on writing ...

"We are a species that needs and wants to understand who we are. Sheep lice do not seem to share this longing, which is one reason why they write so little. But we do. We have so much we want to say and figure out.”

Now this is writing

This. This book is amazing. I am only on page 35 and I am enchanted with the prose.
Will read as slowly as possible so as to savor the words.
Damn, this woman can write.
