Eat, Pray, Love: Movie Trailer 2010

EPL I remember when I first read it Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. I couldn't get enough. My life was in transition This book has two sides: people who love it (like me) and those who vehemently hate it. I can bring up this book to 10 women and it's always the same response (half love it/half hate it).  Elizabeth has a new book Committed: A Skeptic Makes Peace With Marriage and because I'm a fan of all her work I've plowed through it. I find that it has bits and pieces of Elizabeth's voice that I love reading. At times she can be overly thinking, but she gives a hilarious take on why she didn't want to marry, but eventually couldn't find a good enough reason not to.

I read Pilgrims and Stern Men eons before EPL and her writing makes me happy.  Committed is vastly different, but I appreciate books of all kinds.  Some I get and some I don't, but that won't make me stop reading it.  Elizabeth is hilarious in person.  I highly recommend attending one of her lectures to see her personality come through. 

But when I saw the movie trailer for Eat, Pray, Love it made me want to revisit the book and curl up in its pages.  It makes me want to visit Italy to feast (again), head to India with Kimberly Wilson and Darren Main to pray and practice yoga, and Bali to fall even deeper in love with l'homme.  There is a line in the trailer where Julia Roberts says "I used to have an appetite for my life and now it's gone."  I hope to always have an appetite for my learning full of learning, traveling, feasting, yoga practicing, being kind, and remembering that this is the only life I get. 

I've cleared my calendar for Friday, August 13 so I can take in this movie in all its splendor with the one I love the most – me, myself and I.  I already know the movie will leave out certain parts of the book, but this traveler can't wait to see all the gorgeous locations where they shot the movie. 

Have a beautiful yoga filled weekend.  I'm attending a Yoga and Wine Workshop and can't wait to tell ya'll how it went.
