I heart doing things. If you live around SF, you can do these things too.

black like her black beautiful heart

anne lamott at city arts | artyarts | 03/26/07
anne lamott has been my hero ever since i read "operating instructions: a journal of my son's first year," where she admits to wanting, at times, to kill her cat, and her young son. i was a high schooler when i read it, and believed that it took some courage to admit that your own kin could drive you that crazy. now, in the heyday of david sedaris, it may not be such an amazing thing anymore, but i still think anne is tops. she's an honest, gutsy writer who often put some of my greatest fears into words (namely, the fear of first drafts, in "Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life"). she's speaking at the herbst theatre on march 26, 2006. get your tickets now ($19 apiece).
