Eat Pray Love

Or is it Love Pray Eat?  I don't remember.  Last night I went out with a few friends and we watched the Julia Roberts movie based on the book.  I did not like the book, couldn't stand to read about her love affair with this guy that she basically ran to when she no longer wanted to be married.  Luckily, the movie didn't really get into all of that, in fact, the movie focused more on the journey that she took to discover herself.  I told Joel that the movie was like Darjeeling Limited for ladies, though I am a little more partial to the guys from Darjeeling than I am to the cast of Eat Love Pray. 
The scenery was beautiful and I was thankful to see escape into it for almost two hours.  The story line took a bit of a second show in regards to the countries that were explored, and that could just be my viewing.  I was struck by the desire to travel and to write about the places I go and was haunted by Nate in the stories I have started about him and his life.  I think maybe in some way, I have not been blogging because he desires the attention that he needs and instead of giving it to him, I have been ignoring writing all together.  Shame on me.  I hope to do some writing with the rest of my summer.

Here's the important part about this post and why it's here on HoHa instead of some random other blog that I could have created.  Part of cultivating the home arts is being with people.  Home's do not exist in a vacuum, they exist in a community.  Cultivate friendships and love your friends and family. And don't forget to Pray Eat Love

  1. The best part of the movie was seeing it with friends and talking about it afterwards!
