Hi there!

This is me. Through the eyes of my younger daughter. In reality, I’m not nearly as good looking. If you’d like to see me live though, join me on social media:)

Best Book In My Life. So Far, Anyway ;)

Best Book In My Life. So Far, Anyway ;)

Preamble

Can anybody find me somebody to love?

Ooh, each morning I get up I die a little
Can barely stand on my feet
(Take a look at yourself) Take a look in the mirror and cry (and cry)
Lord, what you're doing to me (yeah yeah)
I have spent all my years in believing you
But I just can't get no relief, Lord!
Somebody (somebody) ooh somebody (somebody)
Can anybody find me somebody to love?

I work hard (he works hard) every day of my life
I work 'til I ache in my bones
At the end (at the end of the day)
I take home my hard earned pay all on my own
I get down (down) on my knees (knees)
And I start to pray
'Til the tears run down from my eyes
Lord, somebody (somebody), ooh somebody
(Please) can anybody find me somebody to love?

Everyday (everyday) I try and I try and I try
But everybody wants to put me down
They say I'm going crazy
They say I got a lot of water in my brain
Ah, got no common sense
I got nobody left to believe in
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Oh, Lord
Ooh somebody, ooh somebody
Can anybody find me somebody to love?
(Can anybody find me someone to love)

Got no feel, I got no rhythm
I just keep losing my beat (you just keep losing and losing)
I'm OK, I'm alright (he's alright, he's alright)
I ain't gonna face no defeat (yeah yeah)
I just gotta get out of this prison cell
One day (someday) I'm gonna be free, Lord!

Find me somebody to love
Find me somebody to love
Find me somebody to love
Find me somebody to love
Find me somebody to love
Find me somebody to love
Find me somebody to love
Find me somebody to love love love
Find me somebody to love
Find me somebody to love
Somebody somebody somebody somebody
Somebody find me
Somebody find me somebody to love
Can anybody find me somebody to love?
(Find me somebody to love)
Ooh
(Find me somebody to love)
Find me somebody, somebody (find me somebody to love) somebody, somebody to love
Find me, find me, find me, find me, find me
Ooh, somebody to love (Find me somebody to love)
Ooh (find me somebody to love)
Find me, find me, find me somebody to love (find me somebody to love)
Anybody, anywhere, anybody find me somebody to love love love!
Somebody find me, find me love

Post Preamble

Um, not I’m not struggling or anything!:) But oh yes, Big Magic rings this song in my head! Can you hear Freddie’s powerful voice breaking through the screen? :)

Amble. (I know it’s not what comes after preamble. Or post preamble in this case)

Big Magic

The best book I've read in my entire life. I'm damn serious.

I probably can’t write anything that could do this book the justice it deserves. Thank goodness this book doesn't need me to do it justice! And in the spirit of this book, I absolutely had to write this review.

So, yes. Best. Book. Ever.

But first, let me trace back to a huge mistake I made a few years ago.

I watched "Eat. Pray. Love."

And wow, was it bad! Julia Roberts and all, it was just so blah! A sad, desperate loser on the loose, I said to my husband in private. Long, shockingly bland movie. Never did I think that I would be dying to read the book it was based on. Which I am - now. Also, all of a sudden, I am a huge fan of Elizabeth Gilbert.

What can I say, I know how to change my mind ;)

Back to Big Magic. I was curious to read "Big Magic" after all the raging reviews. Especially after my personal hero (yes, I have a lot of personal heroes) Marie Forleo did an interview with Elizabeth Gilbert. And then I saw Gilbert's Ted Talk.

And I was hooked.

But I am spiteful. At times. Especially when my spite is harmless. And when nobody cares for my spite ;)

So, Fine, I thought.

Reluctantly, I bought the book.

Reluctantly, I started reading it.

And then I gulped it down like there is no tomorrow.

I was literally getting goosebumps as I was reading it.

I laughed out loud, because Gilbert's sense of humor is unique, rustic, and incredibly contagious.

I cried, too. Because I cry. It's kinda awful, but I'm finally at the stage of self acceptance when I literally don't give a damn that it’s awful to cry. Oh, and I cry in private, so I literally don’t care. I can deny all of it in public. Haha!

I highlighted whole chapters, because I loved them so much.

Ignore that band aid. I will live. Just look at all the flags I have!

Yes, I'm seriously considering memorizing certain passages by heart, they are so good.

Okay, I'm not a crazy lunatic so I won't memorize anything. But yes, oh yes, I will reread "Big Magic!"

Now, please! Share the best book that you have ever read!
