Manic Monday - 12th edition

I was led to a wonderful blog that I must share with you all on this Manic Monday!  The Harris Happy Family Blog.  Her post spoke to my soul today through a book I will no doubt go pick up. 

Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert

I am burdened with what the Buddhists call the 'monkey mind' -- the thoughts that swing from limb to limb, stopping only to scratch themselves, spit and howl...




When you're lost in those woods, it sometimes takes you a while to realize that you are lost. For the longest time, you can convince yourself that you've just wandered off the path, that you'll find your way back to the trail head any moment now. Then night falls again and again, and you still have no idea where you are, and its time to admit that you have bewildered yourself so far off the path that you don't even know from which direction the sun rises anymore...

EPL is an awesome book. You will most definitely enjoy it. I hope you already got it. I couldn't put it down when I read it.
