Dolce Far Niente

I just finished Eat Pray Love and, let me say, I thought it was beautiful. Julia Roberts did a phenomenal job, per usual.

I have not read the book, unfortunately (now on my amazon wish list…) but i thought the story was brilliant and inspiring.  I envy Liz’s courage to up and leave her life to find herself. With everything I’ve been considering and feeling lately, this story really made me want to travel and truly experience life–immerse myself in the unknown….

“In the end, I’ve come to believe in something I call “The Physics of the Quest.” A force in nature governed by laws as real as the laws of gravity. The rule of Quest Physics goes something like this: If you’re brave enough to leave behind everything familiar and comforting, which can be anything from your house to bitter, old resentments, and set out on a truth-seeking journey, either externally or internally, and if you are truly willing to regard everything that happens to you on that journey as a clue and if you accept everyone you meet along the way as a teacher and if you are prepared, most of all, to face and forgive some very difficult realities about yourself, then the truth will not be withheld from you.”

    I’m the opposite! I read the book a couple of years ago and loved it, so I can’t bring myself to see the movie–I’m afraid it will leave out some of my favorite quotations and moments. You’ll have to read the book, though, it really is a great read.
