Being Kind to Each Other

I have just finished Anne Lamott's new book, "Stitches", which is perhaps her most spiritual treatise. She tells stories about hard things and sad things like cancer and illness and loss and death. Some of the book is re-telling stories you have read before if you are, like me, a big fan of Anne's. But they support this new book and the idea that we are stitching our selves and our world together with kindness, presence and breath.

The quote I loved most and have pasted over my desk at work is this sentence from Ram Das:

"Ultimately we are all just walking each other home."
