www.sendsationals.com asked several people: "How do you feel when you open the mailbox and find personal mail from a loved one (i.e. not bill, bank statement or flyer, etc)?"
Here are a few of their answers: 1. I feel anxious and excited. (Hebe, Holland) 2. When I get a letter delivered by a postman, it sends me back to my teenage years of penpal-ing and then as now, I experience almost childlike joy and excitement when I hold a letter in my hands. And if that letter is sporting foreign stamps? Have mercy! Is like Christmas. Love love love getting mail in the post. Just love it. (Philogene, Trinidad) 3. I’m always happy to see personal mail from a loved one. (Rose, England) 4. I feel growing excitement and a little thud of the heart as I am about to open the mail. (Rachelle, Trinidad) 5. I love personal snail mail so much, even though it never comes I look for it everyday. (Keisha, USA) 6. I feel uplifted, after reading it I usually like to reply one time... love writing cards & letters... (Veronika, Tobago) 7. Feel moved. Moment to savour. (Carolyn, Canada)
Every Wednesday in Buccoo, Tobago, special
needs children connected to Healing with Horses Foundation and Yahweh
Foundation join Thou Art Yoga for "The Art of You"—fun yoga and art
sessions on the cliff at sunset. Sessions run for an hour, with an extra
half hour set aside for clearing up and washing yoga mats.
Yesterday an intimate group of children from
Yahweh Foundation joined us for the 2nd 'Art of You' session. We had lots of fun ... yoga (individually and in pairs),
drumming on buckets and a few minutes of shouting "I AAAAAAAAMMMMMMM!" as loudly as we could across the ocean from the cliff, to let people know how great we are.
Marsha Pearce, using her photographic and graphic skills, put together two simple but effective images (see below) including lyrics from my song and guidance on how to practise One Minute Breath. I quite like what she did.
This year my two sisters and I pooled our talents to
create the 2013 calendar featured here. This innovative, interactive date-keeper is made up of twelve detachable postcards,
featuring images that merge the simple magic of nature with uplifting
words. With this calendar you experience the treasure and pleasure of sending and receiving snail mail. Detach an image/postcard at the end of every month and send it to a loved one. Who doesn't like to get an exciting surprise in their mail box?
