Ooh I love this: 'you are in co-collaboration with the world. You are always moving with something, creating something in partnership. You’re never alone.' Thanks for the great book recommendations too 😃 And I notice as I get older (50 this year) that colour plays a much more central role in my wardrobe (I think perhaps I didn't have the confidence to be so bold in my younger years..) ❤️🧡💛💙

I'll be in Portland next week and can't wait to go to Powell's to pick up a copy of Ann Patchett's essays. And I think it is a wonderful idea to travel to Nashville just to visit a bookstore. Thank you!

So happy to read this interview! I love her newsletter and now I know more about her in a more holistic way. So glad I discovered this feature in your newsletter.

That’s another three books added to my reading list. Already nailing the bright jumper (and glasses) so I feel like I’m winning today!

Would love to buy Emma's book but they don't ship to Australia, any ideas of how to get hold of it?

Things that have helped me through some bleak times, a cup of Barry’s tea, a phone call with a friend who makes me laugh and time in nature. Loved this interview, great questions!

What are some of the basic things that have helped you through a bleak time? Nature. Time outside always reorganizes my energy. Do you enjoy colorful clothing? Yes! I love color. How’s your relationship going with yourself? Great. I'm so proud of the work I've done to get where I'm at today. I have nothing figured out as I'm navigating a huge transformation, but I trust in the unfolding. I somehow know that I'm exactly where I'm meant to be and that's keeping me going. Plus I mother two amazing girls, so I embody joy for them too.
