RAMBLINGS OF A BLOGGER: gentle reminders

With a cup of tea on hand and two rusks later I’m staring out at a bleak overcast afternoon wondering how I managed to get through traffic in a record time of 45 minutes! My intention was to have my six must-have winter essentials for this Tuesday post, instead, after a day of jumping between meetings and shooting fashion on models, I decided I’d end the day off with some quotes I love re-reading as gentle reminders about life love and everything… and stop feeling so goddamn guilty about me time.. it’s essential to slow down, breathe and just be. Here goes…

That last one is perhaps the most important; be kind!!

PS: Thanks Pinterest for these inspiring quotes

Happy Tuesday evening peeps

Author Michael Xavier: HEART LIKE A HAMMER World Travel Edition

Author Michael Xavier’s HEART LIKE A HAMMER World Travel Edition goes on sale today and if you got your hands on the first HLAH a few years back, signed and limited to only 1000 die-hard readers, lucky you, as it’s now out of print. (This time I’m ready to order this latest edition!)

In Michael’s words, “HEART LIKE A HAMMER World Travel Edition doesn’t have every piece of the original, as only the ones who own that print will know what is between the covers. BUT this edition has more. More everything. I considered everywhere I have travelled, and everywhere my fans live. This version has almost 100 more pages, including some pages to write down notes, or thoughts, while you travel, which is exactly what I’d do. You’ll see the wanderlust. You’ll smell the history of each word”.

Despite his poems and prose popping up on all social media platforms, from Pinterest to FB, Instagram, and Tumblr; his YouTube beautifully shot short film clips, very little is known about this underground American author. I suspect he has a DO NOT DISTURB sign on his door, to keep one from prying, all the more intriguing when one wonders about his poems of love and loss…words that tug at the heart and make one think and rethink life, love and everything else!

I’ve included a few of my favourite quotes, some found in the latest HLAH – I hope you enjoy his words as much as I do…it’s a good day 2 October 2017; time to order my HLAH World Travel Edition !

Happy Monday
