The truth and the stories... / by Christina Rosalie

"I believe in everything not yet said."

-- Rainer Maria Rilke

from The Book of Hours

Hello dear ones, Oh it's been so long, I hardly know how to begin. The stories I've been living though--oh, they are good ones. Some to tell, some to tuck away into the secret sheaves of story in my mind.

I can't believe it: that my book will be in book stores in a matter of days, and already it's in Amazon.

The truth is: I don't really have my stuff together at all about this whole book launch thing. It's a wild adventure of living into the moment, and to be honest, there are many days (most, actually) where it feels like I'm hurtling towards the unknown without guardrails.

The truth is also that I wish I had more time, and I'm just now, finally beginning to reclaim some for this work that I love so very dearly.

And the truth is that in every free moment, instead of writing, I've been painting postcards to send out to all my backers, along with printing the most GORGEOUS postcards--of original illustrations from A Field Guide To Now. And they are really so lovely!

It's terribly fun to see them as actual postcards--that you can hold in your hand and scribble notes on from the moment and then send off to your friends and loved ones. I can't wait to share/show them to you!

I'm going to be giving away a couple of packs of postcards this Friday--so stay tuned for details.

In the meantime, tell me things.

Tell me: what has yet to be said in your life?

Tell me: what are you looking forward to with the arrival of this new season?
