Mary Oliver on the magic of punctuation

Flower dresses

“Although introverts are wired at birth to prefer solitude over socializing, and listening over talking, they’re not—by any reasonable definition—deficient in the arts of self-expression or the power to influence others. Inherent in almost all of them is an “extroverted aptitude” altogether capable of charming and captivating those around them. As long as they have the knowledge, will, desire—and passion—to do so, introverts carry within them the same potential for charisma as do their more “out there” counterparts.” … from this post (thanks Anthony)

When my friend Andrea Scher invited me to join her and 10 other women I genuinely admire to be part of a mega 72 hour sale event, I didn’t hesitate to say yes. Why? Because these chicks are all doing good work and I know a bargain when I see one! If you haven’t come across one of these 72-hour sale things before, here’s how it works: for the next 72 hours all of the courses and ebooks listed below are being offered together in a big bundle of goodness for just $99 (approximately £60 or €76 or $111 AUD) for the lot!

Here’s what’s in the bundle:

1. Vivienne McMaster: Your Beloved Camera E-book (Value $44)
2. Marianne Elliott: 10 Big Ideas for Putting Courage to Action (Value $49)
3. Kelly Rae Roberts: Flying Lessons: Tips + Tricks to Help Your Creative Business Soar (Value $140)

I’ve contributed the ebook version of the Sacred Alone, which contains all the content from the course — 14 emails and 14 MP3 meditations — in a beautifully designed PDF format. This isn’t a live version of the course — that’s happening in November (pre-holiday calm!) — but is still a lovely way to connect to your own sacred alone and meditate with me in your headphones :)

The sale starts right now (Wednesday September 24th, 12:01 PST / 08:01 BST) and ends at midnight PST on Friday September 26th (8am BST on Saturday in the UK).

The bundle
I’m not usually one to do affiliate stuff — when you earn money for promoting someone else’s work — because I’m not the biggest fan of selling at the best of times! But this is a) the sort of thing I’d buy myself and b) a genuine bargain :) so I’m happy to join in on the offer and happy to offer it to you guys — there’s lots of great stuff to explore and dive into for the rest of the year!

Kew Gardens in London | SusannahConway.com
The book creation adventure continues, with new-to-me parts of London getting added to my favourites list. I lived here for ten years the first time and I can’t believe I never ventured out to Kew Gardens — it’s absolutely magical! I only had time to see a fraction of the place, but what I did see was enough to persuade me to buy a season ticket. If you only have a couple of days in London there are other places you should check out first (and I’ll be doing a Things to See in London post soon), but if you’re here for a week or more, plan to spend a day there. It’s worth it, trust me.

Creating this book has been an invitation to submerge myself in photography — I snap photos with my iPhone every day, but breaking out the big cameras is a whole other game. Still, I really do believe it’s our eyes that take photos. It doesn’t matter what camera you use, it’s more about the intention behind the picture you take. Recording a memory… creating art… sharing a peek into your world… taking a portrait to treasure. To my mind, photography is magical.

The autumn session of Photo Meditations is currently enrolling, so if you’d like to take your photography up a notch with me (smart phones are more than welcome, by the way!) head over here to read more and sign up. This is the last time the class will run this year xo
