Something for the weekend

I’m on the mend but still exhausted. SO OVER IT. How are you?

I saw a peacock with a fiery tail

Don’t know if this is real, but I like it: The Instagram socialmatic camera (via Christianne)

My friend, Susan Piver, has just opened a subscription version of her beloved Open Heart Project. It’s $108 a year and in addition to meditation instruction + dharma talks, you get webinars, virtual retreats, a book club, book reviews, members forum, and much more. In Susan’s own words: “It’s meant to help people find a bit of quiet time every day for themselves and to soften those harsh inner voices that impede creativity and, well, everything else…” I so need this! You too?

There’s a fab giveaway happening on Ryan’s blog right now: a copy in Instant Love and a restored Polaroid Land camera (!) from lovely Cory at Rare Medium

If you don’t know already know Ryan (he made our trailer for us), you might want to hang out on his blog for a while — he really writes with heart

Have a great weekend, everyone! xo

    I am doing Susan’s “Practioner” membership level, am so excited about it, but I think I’d follow her into just about anything. I adore her. And thank you for the link to Ryan’s blog. I just read his post about his partner’s miscarriage–so brutal but so beautiful. Glad you are on the mend!

    *”The Instamatic Socialmatic is only a concept…
    But, maybe, it could became real…”*
    Found this statement on several sites…;( I would bet on it coming out in the not too distant future though! I would also bet that we would both snap that beauty up very quickly!
    Thank you for your “Something for the weekend”, it’s always interesting!
    Oh! Got your second book this week, yeah! And congratulations again on both of them!
    See you on Pinterest!

    Dear Susannah, I have just received my ‘Your order of This I know … has shipped!’ I shan’t be expecting it anytime soon, as it has to make it’s way all the way down to Nouvelle-Zelande, nonetheless in the midst of pain and a life that’s unravelling faster than I can keep pace, I am bursting with hope, for all that it may mean.. Kindest wishes xx
