God In Greece: I Ate. I Prayed… But Did I Love?

One of my favorite books is Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. In it, Liz (as I so affectionately call her because I feel like I know her) recounts how she ate, prayed, and loved during her 12 months of travel to Italy, Indonesia, and India, respectively. Me, having the Type A personality that I… Continue reading God In Greece: I Ate. I Prayed… But Did I Love?
