    I’m fascinated by the idea behind your book and have it on my wishlist. Your art/life article sounds exactly like my own approach and I’d love to read a different perspective on it. The Somerset magazines are hard to find here as well so that would be a double bonus. 🙂 Hopefully it’s ok that I’m not in the US…{}

    Rachel, I packed 100 boxes in our move. I’m going crazy because I can’t find “all i did was listen”.
    Back permits me to unpack one or two boxes a day. But I check your web pages every day for inspiration to do the tasks of getting settled.
