I like to think of myself as a bit cosmopolitan.
Born in Europe, grew up to a large extent in Saudi Arabia, went to high school in Texas, I have two graduate degrees, blah, blah, blah…
Closer to the truth, is that I am as libertarian, white, Baptist, conservative(-ish) as you can be.
And through everything I have read, Anne Lamott is as opposite of me as you can get.
I find her a complete contradiction in so many ways.
And you know what?
I love her.
I love the way she is a mess (or has been).
I love the fact she is not like me.
I love that we share a common faith.
And I love the way she writes.
If you care about writing, do not miss her book, Bird By Bird.
