After years of living near a forest the term “edible landscaping” conjures images of deer and rabbits eating my lettuce. Adjusting my thinking to urban living I realize this is what I do in my tiny city yard as neighbours hang on my fence with an amused look and then pick a warm cherry tomato as they leave.

Anne Lamott has written a powerful book, really more like a hardcover essay, likely the most honest and human book of prayer there is. A book to be read in one sitting because you have to and then again in contemplation because you need to. There are stories of prayers uttered on bended knee and those that come from a place that is straight and angry. When you consider how angry God must have been to send The Flood, perhaps strong emotion is acceptable. Meek isn't for everyone.
