What a lovely new book from Anne Lamott. I love that her writing is so human, clever, and honest. While the book's main anchor is about her grand-sons first year, she explores her connection to the divine, and nagivating her new relationship with her son, her grand-son, and her grand-sons mother. I have been working on the concept of "keep your eyes on your own mat" - a beautiful idea I first read in a blog by Jessica Berger Gross. Anne, it appears, is working with the same concept. She relays "I practiced releasing them to grow and find their own way" and "It is the most difficult Zen practice to leave people to their destiny, even though it's painful - just loving them, and breathing with them, and distracting them in a sweet way, and laughing with them". "I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that if something was not my problem, I probably did not have the solution". I am taking these ideas to heart, and working on putting them into practice.
