April Giveaway -

First of all - thank you to all who commented on the last post.  It always makes me feel slightly less crazy when others offer similar stories.  I appreciate all the wonderful comments and insights.

Today I have a day off and I'm on my way outside to tour the backyard and see what's popped up in the gardens and lawn in the last two days while I've had to work indoors.  This time of year, so much is blooming and popping up in the perennial bed.  The late Winter peas I planted are about three inches tall now and I need to pick up some more fencing for them.  There is much to do and observe and I could just sit out there all day and soak in the delicious Spring energy.

Also - if my explosion of freckles is any indication - it's time for sunscreen too.

In the meantime, lets get to the April giveaway!  This book, by Don Miguel Ruiz (author of The Four Agreements) gets wonderful reviews from everyone I talk to who has read it.  I have a copy on my bookshelf, but I've not gotten to it yet.  I'm knee deep in gardening tomes and herb and medicinal plant books at the moment (and for the foreseeable future.)

If you'd like your own copy of "The Voice of Knowledge" all you have to do is leave a comment and be a friend of the blog in some capacity.  Follow in one of the many ways on the sidebar - whatever way floats your boat.  I'll also pop some extra goodies in the parcel when it goes out to the winner.  I'll draw the name (random number generator is how I roll these days) on April 30th and contact the winner, so make sure that there is a way for me to contact you.

Good luck!

I loved reading your last post in a lot of ways I feel the same as you and I love the term Liminalist I think it works no matter where you are since one a threshold has been crossed there are always other thresholds.

I follow you on all the social media listed. Sounds like a really interesting book but as with you I am busily occupied in my gardens and probably would not get to the book for a bit, if I won :)

Hi, that looks very interesting. Are overseas readers also welcome to enter ?? I live in The Netherlands and would really like to join in the fun ; )
Have a great day.

Monique - overseas is no problem! I do send the parcel via surface though, which takes several weeks to arrive. I'd love to ship it air, but it generally costs a fortune.

I love reading your blog posts. They're always insightful and charming and full of great topics and things to think about! I'm incredibly interested in this book and what it has to say. [I follow you on twitter, but my email just in case is ellen.jennie(at)gmail(dot)com ]

Hi Jen,

I enjoyed reading all your recent posts and plan to reply to some of them via email when time allows. You always have the most interesting things to share. :)

Thanks also for the chance to win this great book. I looked it up at amazon.de -- it's definitely an interesting read. As always I trust that the right person will win it. :)

Take good care and enjoy spring! Today's the first sunny and warm spring day in Munich -- yeah! Temperatures are said to go up, up, up until the weekend. Would be lovely to finally put the winter jacket in the closet.
